Built on taut percussion, staccato guitar and melodic synth flourishes, the track finds the band at their most immediate. Sophie’s unmistakable voice weaves a tale of painful self-discovery in the hope of showing others the way, and the driving, evocative song seems destined to become an anthem.
“If I Don’t Break Your Heart I’ll Break Mine” is about knowing when you need to be by yourself” Sophie explains. “I wrote it when I was 19 and overwhelmed with anxiety and low self-esteem. I was still relying on others to make me happy and I had no idea who I wanted to be. The only way I could find out was if I took myself away from others to get to know myself better. So I did that, hoping the people who loved me would understand. It’s crazy to finally release it and be able to see where it’s taken me.”
‘If I Don’t Break Your Heart I’ll Break Mine’ follows their recent singles ‘Don’t Ask Me To Change’, ‘Right Now’, and their mega-hit collaboration with Purple Disco Machine, ‘Hypnotized’ (which racked up 4-times platinum status in Italy, platinum in Poland & gold across a further 7 countries in Europe)
From their adoptive hometown of Sheffield the band have been refining their intense, life-affirming sound which has already won fans at Radio with support from BBC Introducing, Radio 1 & Radio X. In 2019 the band were invited to play Radio 1’s Big Weekend, as well as delivering storming sets at Glastonbury and Reading festivals.
The band will play a special UK exclusive show at London’s Lafayette venue this September, and they recently announced they’ll be heading out on a full European tour in 2022.
