about

"The song Preset got started when we were flicking through sounds in an old soft synth. We were actually searching for something completely different, but this preset rhythm suddenly came out and inspired a new song. The lyric gently mocks religion and notions of fate. The "it's my destiny" bollocks so often spouted on tv talent shows, the thanks to God on the back of a record sleeve. Scum was written in the aftermath of the 2007 financial crash, and actually deals with a similar thing to Preset. Where v.rich people decide they must have more merit than people who've got less money. Meritocracy in action, the self-creation of a 21st century gentry."

-Richard Barrat, Crooked Man
