Wearing it’s influences proudly on it’s sleeve ‘The Comfort And The Confusion’ gives a nostalgic nod to the likes of The Promise Ring, The Get Up Kids and Jimmy Eat World, whilst leaving a personal stamp on a genre that has seen a massive revival in the last few years.
Speaking of the release the band said “The Comfort and the Confusion represents the stage where this new experience isn’t so new anymore and is getting a little stale. It’s easy sometimes to lose appreciation for something when you’re maybe taking it a little for granted“.
