Why, taken from their critically acclaimed Top 20 album Walking Like We Do (reviewed here), is released today as their latest single.

The band, founded in London in 2014 by Juliette Jackson, have also released the first part of their new podcast, discussing the origins and creation of each album track. You can Listen to Track x Track 1– It’s Easy Then here.

Despite lockdown, it’s a busy time for the band. In response to the worldwide Covid-19 emergency, they have contributed to Songs For The National Health Service, a one-off compilation album of exclusive, unreleased tracks by some of the biggest names in indie.
