Encapsulating a band with expanded horizons, harnessing a broad scope of influence from ‘In Rainbows’ era Radiohead, to the New Romantic electronic soaked music of the 1980’s, the album was written and demoed entirely from Welsh’s bedroom and showcases their natural transition in sound, whilst retaining the acerbic lyricism and melodic focus present on their earlier work.
Of new single “King Of My Head” Welsh explained:
“The lyrics are about kidding yourself that you’re in control. I’m the King of My Head, tell me who would rule instead? Cos see when your head’s working against you, you think to yourself sometimes – this is me. I’m doing this. I can stop this. I can think my way out of feeling this way. But the tool you have to fix the problem is the same one that causes it. Like fixing a hole in the wall with a hammer”.
