    Listen to our new song “Crest of the Wave” now. Big big love to Zane Lowe for the premiere.

    A portion of it existed in 2011, and we had demoed it in Australia and just left it for years. But it was one of those songs which had always been at the back of our minds, like there was some unfinished business there. As we were playing around with it with some of the themes on this record, we cracked it open and really revelled in adding lots of layers to it in the studio. It’s another transportive song. It’s set in St. Lucia, which has always struck me as being very powerful visually, with the mountain plummeting into the sea.

    "Crest of The Wave"

    Ride the waves, dark days
    It's Tropic Grey, there's much to say
    It's 8 Beaufort, we swim to shore
    Then order more, head back to yours

    You show me signs, then pull away
    In broken lines, distant days,
    Rule the waves, It's you i crave
    Summer daze, Hot bones

    Stuck On St Lucia
    I promised i'd meet you
    but my words wait on water
    so i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave

    All i need, in ambergris
    Come be with me, we'll flee the scene
    So roll me up, smoke away
    Aftersun, in Tropic Grey,

    It's green on green, some distant day
    Summer line, faraway
    Sunset of, calamine
    Some broken words, Are you mine?

    Stuck On St Lucia
    I promised i'd meet you
    but my words wait on water
    so i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave
    i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave
    i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave
    i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave

    Stuck On St Lucia
    I promised i'd meet you
    but my words wait on water
    i'll always be there waiting at the crest of the wave

    i'll be waiting at the crest of the wave, 
    i'll be waiting
