"I wanted to write songs that really captured a certain feeling that most people experience all the time but in a different way. I wanted to do a record that just reflected positivity, that feeling of coming out of a difficult period and looking forward. The images and ideas are fired out from all directions, it's all a bit uncertain where we're going to end up, but a bit of ruthless optimism is what it's all about. The dull stuff and the humdrum doesn't matter, because it's always in your hands." - Eugene McGuinness
