Indie-pop band Only The Poets have shared their new single Crash, as they embrace the battle with emotions.

The track, co-written with Olly Burden and Tylr Rydr was produced by King Ed.  It takes driving drums and guitars, feeding in an element of synth-pop.

Speaking about the meaning behind Crash, Only The Poets’ Tommy Longhurst said, “Crash is all about battling with your own emotions. The times when you feel everything is going great in your life, but somehow you latch onto the negatives, like it’s too good to be true. We wanted the track to have elements of calm and chaos to reflect the concept. King Ed brought the song’s conception and meaning to life during the production process; he allowed us to encapsulate our vision of those moments of calm through sparse and electronic-inspired verses, before being plunged into short bursts of band-focussed chaos through the song’s most energetic moments. Dan Grech finished the process by bringing punch and clarity with his amazing mix.”

Unsigned until recently, the band’s DIY ethos saw them build things from the ground up, from playing student house parties, pub circuits and small venues to selling out 1,600-capacity venues in the UK and across Europe last year.

The band are set to perform at a string of festivals across the summer including TRNSMT, Lollapalooze and PUNKPop.
