Speaking about ‘Teenage Headache Dreams’, Masa said: “It’s possible to feel happy even if it means relying on something that isn’t necessarily true, or is half-imagined, or might not even have happened at all.

“If we can find a shared remembrance of a good time, we’re more likely to be able to find that again. A little bit of escapism is healthy.”

Speaking to NME at Reading Festival back in August about the making of the record, Masa said that he’d been “sort of making a guitar album, in a way”.

“There’s a really interesting intersection where it used to be garage bands and now it’s internet bands, and that’s the new DIY,” he continued. “So yeah, I’m kind of going down that way.”
