“Unimagine, for us, is the result of the last two years of our lives. Everything we have seen, learned and experienced, personally and as a band, has found its way into this record one way or another. It’s one thing to write an album, but to create something out of a deeper understanding of yourself and your abilities, especially with all the pressures of expectations you’ve built up along the way is a massive challenge. And in a way, that’s what the album is about – finding happiness and satisfaction by deconstructing what has brought you this far and creating a foundation to create and grow from.”
