Single title? Burnout

What's the song about? Its kinda like Schindler's List, where at the start he's selfish, but then he becomes heaps nice.

How long did it take to write/record? All the best songs start in underpants. From there it was about six months until the finished product.

Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? We don't know! We're putting together a list of songs, but it takes us six months to finish a song. 

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? Shiny disco beats, Schindler's list, spacey textures, and the usual love for pop music produced by the Swedes and Dr. Luke.

We'll like this song if we like... The Beatles melodies with Abba disco beats, and then a real modern sound on it.

Do you play it differently live? No, but we do intersperse a lot more banter. A guy messaged us the other day and said "You guys'll go far if you just stop that bantering." Thanks mate.

When and where is your launch/next gig? 29 Oct at The Foundry!!!!
