Alice from the band on “Level Up”:
“So my original inspiration for ‘Level Up’ was substance addiction/dependence/abuse and I wrote some lyrics I thought went really well with the song structure we had. The awesome thing was that when me and Mike came together it turned out he’d written lyrics on exactly the same thing – he wrote about getting over his drinking issues, so the whole thing came together really quickly and easily. It’s a real honest track and it’s great it’s the first thing people get to hear from this new line up.”
The rest of the band’s back catalogue is available for free/donation now from their Bandcamp.
