Featuring graceful harmonies and anthemic choral elements amid stirring instrumentation and infectious lyricism, the track is an uplifting and inspiring slice of folk-pop perfection.
"Puppets was the last track we chose to put on our new EP,”says singer Tom Twyman.“When we played it live we were overwhelmed with the reception it had with our fans especially as its lyrical content is close to our hearts; it has a very personal theme for us and we love the massive drum and group vocal combination used in the production. We are excited to release this newly recorded version."
The track is the second to be taken from their upcoming EP,Monsters, following the release of ‘Animals’ in January. The EP was previously released as an acoustic collection of tracks and has now been re-recorded as a fully orchestrated representation of the band’s creative evolution since their conception six years ago.
Following a nationwide tour supporting Blue October last month, the band will be performing extensively throughout the summer, including two headline shows in Margate and Cambridge next month, a slew of festivals and their own UK headline tour, starting in October.
The band have built a strong reputation as a formidable live act, having been a staple of the touring circuit for a number of years, with past performances including festival slots at Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight and Bestival, and support slots for the likes of Bastille, King Charles, Scouting For Girls and Wheatus.
With a solid foundation of eclectic influence, live presence and masterly songwriting, 2019 looks set to be the year that catapults the band to new heights.
