Speaking about the track, ‘Puppets’, singer Tom Twyman, said: “Puppets was the last track we chose to put on our new EP.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 band consists of frontmen Tom Twyman and Dulcima Showan, Rob Wicks – on guitar, James Hicks – on percussion, Jamie Smith – on keyboard, and Patrick Channon – on bass. Speaking about their forthcoming EP, ‘Monsters’, Dulcima, said: “‘Monsters is the best we’ve ever sounded,” with Twyman continuing: “This is the first set of songs that I would say represents who we are as a band. Before, a disc was more like a memento of a gig. This is more who we are as people.”
