"The greatest records in the world can be put on in any situation: you can put them on at a party and they're going to sound great, you could put them on in a club and they're going to sound great, you could put them on on your headphones and listen in bed. That's when you get a great album,' says Luke Pritchard. 'And that's how I like to think of this album."
"If it doesn't make you feel good, then what's the point?" says Luke. "There's too much drab shoe-gazing shit around. I hate all that cack. You've to push through it. That's where you get great songs."
"Music should make you happy," concurs Hugh. "It should change you in some way. That's why our fans are so crazy and committed. There's that connection."
"We give people a great night out," continues Luke, who's still only 22. "That's the whole point. And I probably buzz off the crowd more than they buzz off us. Music's all about getting everyone together. How can you be cynical when you're at a festival and there's 20,000 people – all different kinds of people; young, old, black, white – and everyone's singing the same songs?"
