Slow Sun

Album: Marks To Prove It (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This reflection of the morning travel to work incorporates the sounds of commuters into the mix. Vocalist Orlando Weeks told NME: "Sam (Doyle, drums) and I went and recorded people on the really early commute, that first beginning thing when some people are still awake and some people are going to work."

    Guitarist Felix White added: "There's an Italian woman swearing and Cenzo Townshend who mixed the record, he's Italian and he was like 'you know there's an Italian woman screaming obscenities at the start of the track?'"
