The band recently released their debut album. Speaking about it to Upset, Cole Becker explains “I think it’s quite evolutionary. We all got older, we all got tougher. Emily’s Army ended up just being about fun, and this is about fun too, but it’s also about something serious and so the sound had to follow that. This is what we love to do, we want to be able to do this until we die.”
“Sometimes having weird emotional idiosyncrasies can feel very isolating but in the end, everyone’s got some sort of problem like that,” he continues. “‘Drive North’ is about breaking down people’s barriers from each other.”
