“You come to it with a lot of anticipation,” instrumentalist Iain Cook told NME of the upcoming second record.

He added: “It felt like for the longest time while we were on tour, we were feeling the pull to get back into the studio. It just poured out of us. Too many bands end up throwing away the thing people liked about them in the first place.”

Considering the difference between the first album and their forthcoming follow-up, singer Lauren Mayberry told NME: “The first album songs were around for a long time before the album came out. People could hear a lot of the songs on YouTube before they came to the shows.

“This [time round] will be different, so it’s going to be interesting to see whether the tracks we’re thinking about playing will connect in the way we’re imagining, whether the big live moments we’ve envisioned will turn out like that.”
