After releasing a successful string of exemplary pop gems last year, including ‘Rome’ and ‘Are You Ready?’, the Scottish synthpoppers have returned with shimmering new single ‘Away With The Night’ – taken from their forthcoming second album (expected to be released later this year via Twin Music Inc).
‘Away With The Night’ serves a fruitful slice of 80s pop nostalgia, skyrocketing with spiralling synth tones and stuttering vocal melodies reminiscent of electropop newcomer Elohim. While sonically upbeat and positively cinematic, the Glaswegians’ latest single is a tortured torch song directed at another performer, as Stewart explains: “Lyrically it’s a track I wrote as a response to a certain someone, who put a lot of expectation onto what/where we were, and ended up writing a song about me. This is my version of events.”
