Greetings... Firstly, we'd like to thank you for your patience over the last year or so. We wrapped up touring This Is All Yours in December 2015 and took a long break. Thom released a solo album; Gus opened a restaurant; Joe watched a lot of films. We hadn't set a time limit on our time off. And yet by August we were ready to get back into the studio. The result is our third album, RELAXER, and we are really excited for you to hear it.
What of the album? To misquote German football coach Sepp Herberger, 'The disc is round, the album lasts forty minutes. Everything else is pure theory.' RELAXER was written partly on tour, partly in London, even a tiny bit in Leeds and Cambridge. It was recorded all over London - from Shoreditch to St John's Wood, Crouch Hill to Brixton. We worked with producer Charlie Andrew for a third time. We ate a lot of rotisserie chicken. Everything else is for you to decide. We hope you love it as much as we do.
