‘Something Special’ is the 2nd single to be released from the band’s upcoming EP, the song is exactly what the title suggests, it’s an uplifting, energising, guitar driven anthem with a massive chorus, it’s a huge sound from an even bigger band. Co-produced in Attica Studios with the legendary Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, SOAK) “Something Special” is an absolute banger of a tune.
