New album Listen, whichwas produced by young hip hop pioneer Inflo and Luke Pritchard, showcases a new direction and sound for the multi platinum selling UK act.


“To me,” Luke says, “this album is about pure expression. Even the way we made the album felt fresh. Rather than us just being a band in a room, playing our guitars with the vocal over the top, which is what we’d always done before, we were really listening to what was going on around us, picking up ideas. The whole thing was much more natural.”
