Starting with a bassline that could have come straight out of the ’80s post-punk movement, the track evolves into pop rock with modern sensibilities. The melody is catchy as hell and there’s a hidden depth to its bright electronic layers.

Constant tourers, the trio of Phil Jones, Tomas Oliver Moore and Ali Epstone were forced off the road by the pandemic but have clearly been putting the work in in the studio. Check out Trip below. If you like what you hear The EP is available in all the usual places now. Also, if you’re a beer fan, the guys have brought out their own DIPA via Binibrew. There’s limited stock so grab some before it’s gone!
