Recorded during the early part of this year, ‘For the first time’ was finished at the end of the nationwide lock-down. ‘The album features six new songs, including new single, ‘Science Fair’, as well as reinterpreted and newly recorded versions of early tracks, “Sunglasses” and “Athens, France”.
“We wanted it to sound exactly how we love to sound live,” says saxophonist Lewis Evans. “This is basically representative of our first 18 months”, continues frontman Isaac Wood. Indeed the band found they had to stop themselves running too far ahead in order to document this album in a way that felt as truthful as possible. “We see this as being a stop in the road” explains Isaac. I’ve always been interested in a really honest portrayal of what a band is and what they’ve been working on. I think it’s really nice if people can see an artist like: this was them in the early days, this was their next phase and that they’re quite clear and honest about genuine progression as people and musicians.”
