Tell us about your track

Empire is our first single, the song is very much a response to the current political context, both at home and in the world. When powerful entities use money, brute force and exclusionary politics, it is very hard not to feel a sense of despair and anger. The track will take you on a sonic journey of dreamy vocals, chimey guitar leads, fuzzy rhythms, glassy synths and pounding drums.
