Description

After three albums taking confident steps into an ever larger world, their fourth offering, The Story Is... takes the tales of the everyday, the minutiae of our lives, and turns them into potent pop that rings oh so true.
The Story Is... finds fables in vastly contrasting true stories. Of an arsonist setting fire to the flat below Dan's ('Artist Arsonist'), of the sheer annoyance felt when accidentally filling a diesel van with unleaded ('Diesel Vehicle') - both songs laced with insight into everyone's feelings. Even when the songs are outside of the band's personal experience, they are still inspired by close connections. '38 Minutes' came from a friend's Facebook post about receiving the Hawaiian ballistic missile alert in early 2018, while 'Stop & Breathe' is a plea to everyone to take time out when they can, based on a good friend talking after a friend sadly departed due to suicide.
Musically, the band has also scoured volumes of texture and tone. They've turned every melodic instinct up and, along with the hooks and lyrical reality Dan has drawn, it's a deep dip into the band's encyclopaedic sound.
