Is it true that you guys have a remix EP that you’re bringing on the tour with you?
Gwenno: Yeahhhh. It’s brilliant, because it was just an a cappella thing, and we were like, “What should we do with this song?” “Oh, I don’t know, we’ll just get someone,” because we were thinking of things that we could have on tour with us. So we’ve got a Restlesslist remix an actual fan’s remix, a Tom White remix, and a Kat Heath remix. It’s quite nice to hear incredibly modern sounds with our music, I think. And I always felt [our music] is bridging that gap.
