Difficulties with mental health can affect anyone - this can be something you experience directly, or through the people you meet.

We know. Each of us has had times where we’ve experienced the negativity that can arise through dealing with a less than ideal mental state and we’ve always tried to work together to help each other.

It’s been amazing to see the improvements in people’s understanding of mental health and how more and more people are seeking help, helping people they know and generally becoming more accepting of the impact this can have on an individual’s every day life.

Break-Ups as a group are lucky. We look out for each other, we’re best friends, we’re a family, we play music in an environment that is welcoming and understanding, and we always hope to share whatever positivity we can through the music we create.

This song was a collective effort. We wrote it together in a tiny room, late at night. We traded ideas, we disagreed about things, we worked through it and ultimately, we created something that we feel somewhat encompasses our journey to who and where we are today. This song is about friendship, community, sharing experiences and passions. It’s yours.

All funds raised from these downloads will be going to Mind - a charity that is very close to our hearts.

TL;DR? Here’s a new song. It’s about working through the hard times and being there for your mates. Please donate and share.

Much love,

Luke, Alf and Si xx


We wanna wake up everyday
And feel like we’ve made a change
So wipe that sad look from your face
The records that we used to play
Have guided us here to this stage
In our lives and this community

It ain’t worth winning if you can’t win big
It’s sounds just like we’re moving on

So load up that tiny car
And load up the energy
We’ve all got better places to be
Best friends to make
Bad habits to break us into pieces
Come the morning, we’ll be sick, but breathing

It ain’t worth winning if you can’t win big
It’s sounds just like we’re moving on

Goin' hell for leather
Damn, you were gone, gone, gone
Best friends ’till the end
Death won’t wait too long
Slayin’ sadness was your best trick
Man, I never got sick of it
Now we’re covering ground and we’re gone
