With their new EP Was It What You Thought arriving on June 9 via Blitzcat Records, London trio headboy is giving us the first taster of what to expect — an irresistible, math rock inspired guitars-infused new single “Cement”.

The driving bassline and pounding drums create a sense of urgency and momentum, while the jagged guitar riffs add an edge of aggression and rebellion.

Elaborating on the lyrical inspiration behind the new track, the band shared the following: “In the heat of a turbulent summer, misrule reigned. Cement is about taking stock and refuge in the comfort of your friends and the people around you; and the rediscovery of friendship. It includes advice from Mars’ grandfather ‘don’t count the days it slows them down’ – a warning against wishing away life”.
