Lead singer Paul Smith states of the single:

It’s an exuberant New Wave-y alt-pop-rocker about faith, solidarity and sustaining relationships in the face of society’s structural hurdles.

Last week, the band put on an unforgettable election-night performance for lucky attendees at Newcastle’s Star & Shadow cinema. They treated the audience to the first live performances of several songs from the upcoming album, while also raising a substantial amount of money for local food banks.

Featuring catchy riffs, shimmery synths, and an uplifting chorus, ‘Favourite Songs’ gives a sense of collective joy. 

Vocalist, Paul Smith, states of the track:

We aimed to create a peppy yet powerful ode to the consolation of music and companionship in the face of other people’s preconceptions.
