Produced by long-time collaborator Joe Cross and released on his Lovers Music label, ‘Second Hand Emotion’ is a subconscious diary entry discussing frontman’s Fred’s inner worries due to the current state of affairs in our country and globally.
He says “The image explores the vulnerability I feel in today’s society and this idea that we have a voice. In my opinion we don’t have a voice or at least a voice that will be heard. The abstract nature of the image provokes thought. What ever that may be is irrelevant because it’s your own unique thought! Your second hand emotion.”
It comes supported by a strikingly powerful black and white video. Shot at The Bread Shed, Manchester, it captures the power, poise and personality of the band.
Their grandiose pop hooks and raucous live energy has seen them compared to bands like as Catfish & The Bottlemen, The Vaccines and Cage The Elephant, and make infamous appearances at The Great Escape, Tramlines and Kendal Calling Festivals in the last 2 years.
