“It was the first song we worked on with Bo Morgan (from the band, Teme) as producer. Working with someone else was a TOTALLY different experience. Suddenly, you’re accountable not just to yourself and the people you are comfortable with, but someone new, who you have to justify every idea to. This new dynamic made the songwriting much, much tidier and more streamlined. Arliston
“When I started this song I was really just letting it come together as naturally as I could. It was one of those tunes that writes itself, only over a long period of time. People around me have heard the song and jokingly asked what I’m guilty about. The truth is the words aren’t about an event but rather the condition of guilt generally. Doctor Payne
“The Bus Stop Song” tells the love story between The Mood’s frontman/songwriter Dan and his girlfriend Sophie (aaaw). The song is about the irony that they found love in an unpicturesque inner city setting, as opposed to the typical fairytale environment.
“The ethos behind Our Twenties was to try and write a beautifully simple chorus, the sorta thing that you feel you’ve already heard before but can’t quite remember! I probably failed miserably but I like it so who cares… Three chords and the truth lad.” – CALM
“‘Omnipresent’ is a modern take on 60’s Garage Rock/Psych. We created the song by sharing music files back and forth across the Atlantic. The song originated with the brooding and aggressive bass line, and we built the rest of the song around that. We wanted to lift the song from a basic garage rock groove, so we added an unusual, psychedelic leaning lyric, to add a bit of mystery and interest!” – IATUH
The song is about the fear of being buried among strangers in a graveyard far away from your homeground when you wish that your soul should be present and “Shine” among your loved ones on familiar grounds.” – OAAHD
