“‘lmk (if you wanna see me)’ is about a formative period of your life ending. We wrote it during lockdown which inspired the somber, detached feel of the song,” the group explains of the new tune.

The 6-track EP is centered around themes like romance, rejection and 21st century communication, and is due out on September 1 on Akira Records, which boasts stars like Zola Blood and Shura on their roster.

“lmk (if you wanna see me)” is also the third single off of the EP, following “Liquorice” and “Bop,” which found support on big playlists like New Music Friday UK on Spotify, and radio support from stations like 2FM, BBC Ulster and XS Manchester.
