Frontman Matty Healy recently spoke to NME about the song that means the most to him – revealing that ‘She Lays Down’ is about his mother Denise Welch’s battle with post-natal depression.
He added: “How fucking brutal is that? That is brutal – especially considering how close me and my mum are. We are like, insanely close. That resonated with me so much, I think that writing music for me is such a catharsis, and such a personal thing, I think that had to come out. ”
