Insomnia

Album: Knowing What You Know Now (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontwoman Becca MacIntyre told Kerrang the story behind this spooky goth track:

    "It was a really weird time for us when this song came. It was almost like there was a cloud hanging over everyone. We were going through quite a tough time and I remember feeling dazed, in my own little world. I felt like I'd taken 10 steps forward, but 20 back. I was knackered, panicking for some reason, and I couldn't sleep well. So, I got behind the mic and approached it honestly, and it all came out naturally. Then we went to the pub and everything was alright!

    I also remember walking around the streets of Bradford after me and my uncle had a row, and I remember thinking that everyone was going around like zombies and becoming aware that I wasn't the only one feeling like I did. Everybody's just trying to get on and survive."
