“‘Doom Days’ is a record that celebrates real human connections and urges us to keep searching for moments of elation.

“It’s an album that starts in the middle of an Uber ride through the city streets and ends waking on the kitchen floor with the healing sounds of euphoric new single Joy, which sees the demons of life’s hangovers dispelled by a simple phone call from someone special.

“That glimmer of hope at the end of the album says everything – the smallest human gesture can pull you back from the brink.”
