Released: 05.06.20






This record explodes into life and demonstrates the urgency of a band at the height of their powers. With too much to say and not enough time, as reiterated in She’s There, this urgency gives them an extra focus. Like a returning traveller’s quickened step when they catch their first glimpse of home.

Having been on tour pretty much non-stop to celebrate the much-loved Hope Downs, disorientation and homesickness is never far from their minds on this record. Fear not though, this is R.B.C.F., they don’t mope in the loneliness of now, but flip it into the home, hope and love of tomorrow and give you 10 perfectly crafted, lush pop songs about it!
