The track is the first to be taken from the band’s self titled sophomore album, which will be  released on May 21. ‘Need Your Love’ will be released on May 7.

Speaking to NME previously about the album, the band have described it as a “dark, synth led” record. Lead guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto also revealed that the band’s record label had made it clear that they expected the outfit to produce a hit that scores the same level of success as their breakthrough single ‘Sweet Disposition’.

He said of this: “There’s a huge expectation from our label and fans to record another song as big as ‘Sweet Disposition’. That puts pressure on you to succeed.”

The band return to Australia to play selected dates, including 2 shows at the Sydney Opera House as part of Vivid 2012 in late May.
