Bassist and producer of the EP, Rian Gamble said: “We recorded this album in four hours and part of the magic of this EP is that it was so in the moment and was made with snap decisions. That’s what makes it so special to me. I had a mad sense of euphoria when the band was playing. I knew it was going to be something special”

I am incredibly proud of what we’ve done for this EP, seeing it literally come from nothing to it being released onto a label. It is just madness and was never planned.”
