LA TRIMOUILLE: SPLIT FOR THE CITY.
  Last summer after we’d returned from France, we were filming a Teardrops cover video with Miles Langley and Justin Weiler by Kerry’s old flat. We had a bit of a break in the back garden and Peter came up with the main hook of the song, and we quickly recorded the idea on his phone. What we didn’t know until later on is that the whole process, which took around 5 minutes, was recorded by Miles and Justin on their audio equipment. We listened back to find ourselves talking about production styles and video ideas for this largely unwritten nucleus of a song. We decided straight away to make it about a repressed housewife living in the 1950’s, which was probably the beginning of the album’s storytelling themes.  On a more musical note, we had been singing a fair bit of Cyndi Lauper at karaoke nights around London - which probably contributed to the sound of this song.
We’ve attached the recording that Miles and Justin accidentally picked up last summer to give you an idea, not only of the phase we went through of saying ‘like’ all the time, but of what happens in our heads when we start writing a song…
