The making of new single, “Not Gonna Lie”, was the first time the band had ventured into recording entirely by themselves.

Produced and engineered by the band’s keyboard player Mike Nutt and recorded over the summer of early 2015 at various houses and studios. The finishing touches where added at Blackbird Studios with Dave Parkin.

“We’d been talking for a while about recording ourselves so we decided to knuckle down and give it go. We found that doing it this way gave us a lot more creative control in our recording process and enabled us to take our time with tracking to make sure it was exactly how we all wanted it to sound,” - Jamie Turner

“Not Gonna Lie” reaches new sonic territory for the band, the song tells the story of a relationship gone sour. It touches on the turmoil of a couple parting ways and the sadness of reflecting on the past.
