On the subject of the single Marek Ball states:
“Lyrically this is a very personal one for me. It dives into a mixture of my struggles, all tied together by the line ‘take me at my word because it’s all I have’. It touches on the mistakes I've made, the regrets I carry, the rivalries I've started, struggles with mental health, finding and losing religion and dealing with family expectations... It's a lot, but all I have to express it is my words. Having Dafydd do a verse really helped add a new perspective on those subjects, I owe him a lot, and I think he knows that. He’s like family to us”.
Providing irresistible rhythms, raging riffs, infectious energy, snaring hooks and massive amounts of heart, the quartet have already caught the attention of their peers en-mass and are set to gain signifiant traction with their forthcoming EP.
