The five-piece is comprised of Joe Woodward (guitar & vocals), Emily Kocan (bass & vocals), Hayden Lewis (guitar), Gruff Roberts (drums) & Cam Wheeler (synth & percussion).
'Sertraline' is a dark and unsettling slice of psychedelia and the lyrics about singer Emily Kocan’s vivid & sometimes far too real dreams, which occurred as a side-effect of taking anti-depressants:
“The song is mostly self explanatory,” explains Emily. “I wrote the lyrics when I was 18 or 19 and trying out different SSRIs [selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors]. All but one gave me adverse reactions, numbed me out or gave me extremely vivid and often disturbing dreams. Sometimes upon waking up in a dream state I wouldn’t know if what I dreamt was real or not. I think a lot of people experience this, and hearing similar stories from my friends who were also on SSRIs inspired me to write about it.”
Previous single 'GOD (Let You Lose)', which was released in late 2021 got support from the likes of Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 6 Music), Emily Pilbeam (BBC Introducing) & NME (added to their New Bangers playlist).
