The new album ‘Hope’ features stripped down re-creations of their previous album ‘Cope’. Vocalist, Andy Hull says “Our goal was to be as sensitive as possible about not overcrowding the music, and letting it breathe and aiming for pretty. We aimed for nasty and guttural stuff on Cope, and this was more like, ‘How pretty can this be?’ I’ve always liked both sensibilities. This was an opportunity to see if we could sit down and do it for a whole album”.

‘Hope’ is available to buy via iTunes & Spotify.
