Pushing & Pulling was written within the rollercoaster of burgeoning love, and for me it marks the point of accepting what you don’t control and deciding to be serenely resigned to go along for the ride… whether up or down, or both. We wanted the arrangement to have this serene summery guitar pop foundation that the guitar breaks could erupt from to punctuate the chorus.

Working on the tune with Samuel Flynn Scott as a producer was a dream. He brought fresh ears to what me and the band already had together, and some great tweaks to the arrangement. His input also gave us licence to push the sound to something a bit bolder and more punchy
