Though they formed as a punk band whilst still at school, there’s no straitjacket to their current sound, which veers between brooding art rock, crisp electronica, dancefloor R&B, helium hip-hop, shimmering balladry and 80s gloss pop. “Our record will be everything that we are. It is the sum of our combined experiences,” says Healy. The band of the year are only just getting started.
