Speaking to NME about the new record, the band’s Hannah Reid said: “The first album was a lot more about relationships, but then the second one is too – but in a different way. It’s probably about the relationship you have with yourself, rather than one specific other person. The relationship that us three had on the road, and there’s a lot about the meaning of life in general, which is SO lame, but that is what we talk about!”
Guitarist Dan Rothman went on to say that fans can expect it to be less moody than the first record. “It’s maybe less ‘samey’,” he said. “We’ve tried to provide more variety.”
