It’s taken from their upcoming new album ‘Homesick’, which is released on March 25 via Polydor. You can pre-order the new record here.
Speaking about the track, frontman Henry Camamile said: “This song is about dreaming of your American ex-girlfriend instead of the girl you’re with right now.
“It’s a warning to not waste your time on me as my heart is still with another, so I’ll only let you down. It’s about not letting yourself love anyone else, although you know you should.”

The band’s breakthrough debut album, ‘Open Your Head’, tackled many themes including mental health, drug use and regret. The follow-up addresses similarly stark ideas. “I thought a lot about mortality and dying – what it means to be alive and how lucky we are,” Camamile previously told NME. “All the songs came after the pandemic started, so thematically it intensified things.
“The whole environment felt way more intense. We missed quite a significant moment in our lives because we should have been out playing all of our first album shows.”
He added: “We’re moving on and we’re bringing something different. We could have made the first album again but we didn’t. We were really ruthless, we skimmed out any excess. It’s better than the first record and we feel so proud of it.”
