We last heard from Leeds alt-rock, all-girl four-piece in 2015 with 'In Foreign'.
They return with more melodic structures, catchy riffs, and subtle, dreamy vocals on new single ‘Compass’.
Out digitally today (May 18) via Bomb The Twist, vocalist Sarah Statham describes it as "a song about tenacity, compassion and the strength of the human spirit, ‘Compass’ is inspired by a person’s sense of home and security. The lengths to which love and care will reach."
In late 2016, the band went into the studio with Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Supergrass). The pair of resulting recordings - ‘Compass’ and an as yet untitled second track - are the first results to be put out. The band's debut album is expected in 2018.
