Furthermore Guillaume is a house producer and DJ, Dan comes from the hip-hop corner and Tom works is a songwriter for pop music. Each member already worked with well-known artists as AlunaGeroge, George Fitzgerald, Kasabian and Celeste.
“On and On” is a regretful love song, but still spreads good vibes and is based on a funky alt-pop sound. “This one started life as a love song, a real romantic slow burner, but as we got to the chorus it somehow became about someone who’s left. It’s almost like the song wishes it was a love song”, vocalist and frontman Tom Havelock describes. Listen to the song below.
