Easiest song you wrote?

Jokes you have in the band?
Daf – Seun can’t seem to write a song that doesn’t hint at pyromania. It’s probably a good thing we don’t have a pyrotechnics budget for our shows yet.

Daf – I think most people feel that they fit into some kind of group and are part of something bigger than themselves.
See us live at?
Chay – The Moon, Cardiff. We love that venue!

Variations you’d like to do on any of your songs?
