The band recently explained the role both Fleetwood Mac and Kanye West played in making of ‘Undertow’, with drummer Rory Loveless telling NME: “We spoke to Kanye West [on the set of Later… With Jools Holland in 2014]. He was talking about wanting to put more aggression into his music, but I think we’ve kind of backed off from that a little bit,” he said.

Going on to describe the ways in which he and brother Eoin have changed, Loveless continues: “We’ve grown up so there’s more freedom [in the music] and not so much brattiness. It’s not so abrasive. We’ve chilled out. There’s one song that screams Fleetwood Mac.”

Nottingham Rescue Rooms (April 10)

Gateshead The Sage (13)
