Single title? If You Want It

What's the song about? If You Want It is about compromising yourself for someone else. Changing the way you feel to suit someone else.

How long did it take to write/record? James had the main riff for quite a while, but I remember this one session was over roughly two hours. I wrote 90% of the lyrics demoing in the studio over about half an hour.

Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? Yes, this is from our first album titled Stranger Than Strangers. Should be out in February. 

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? Usually it's working off each other, feeding the chemistry you get writing as a band in a live environment, If You Want It we wrote live.

We'll like this song if we like... It's a pretty feel-good sounding track. You'll like this track if you like dreamy guitars and melodic pop. 

Do you play it differently live? Live it's a bit different, we speed it up just a little bit and go pretty hard in the bridge ha ha. 

When and where is your launch/next gig? 11 Nov, The Curtin; 18 Nov, Crowbar; 19 Nov, Brighton Up Bar. We are donating $1 from every ticket sale to PetRescue for all November Shows.
