It doesn’t matter what you like or dislike, the festival is back and across 5 days we will reunite with old friends and make many new ones whilst listening to bands of old, unknown acts and acts that are just plain mystifying.

Fires of Freya – Starless Sky single review

The lyrics completely contradict the happy feel-good vibe of the song deliberately because the end premise is that things are better when you are not with the wrong person.

The surprises however come from what else the duo can achieve together and on ‘Worthwhile’ we get a heartfelt, slower, piano driven number that is no less powerful but could easily become a soundtrack entry for many many movies over the next few years.
