Lead singer Hayley Shea said:
“It’s about the desperation that comes when I think about climate change.
It’s supposed to be an honest description of how I’m definitely not doing enough to stop it, and how it feels so massive and difficult, but at the same time it in part comes down to lots of small and every-day choices.”
The single will be a constant reminder in the back of people’s minds about the need to change our habits and to be more eco-friendly. The band are about to head out on a European tour with PUP in November, with UK dates between the 21st and 30th.

George Capon – Underground
Manchester singer-songwriter ‘George Capon’s‘ release ‘Underground’ is catchy, instantly likeable and can only be described as a certified feel-good banger.
Speaking on the honest and open lyricism on his latest single, George said:
“Aside from the feel-good vibe, Underground is about the side of myself that I’m not always proud of but exists anyway. The stuff that everyone goes through during their lives. It’s about the fear of letting people down, the fear of getting older without accomplishing your dreams and aspirations, the constant analysing and overthinking that people put themselves through each and every day, jealousy, anger and frustration. All in all, it’s the most brutally honest song I’ve ever written and I’m incredibly proud to have it out there for everyone to hear.”
