‘Scarborough’ is a noticeable departure from the recent psychedelic, folk-tinged rock of the quartet’s recent releases and shows the band’s diversity in composition alongside Cheeseman's impressive vocal capabilities.

The song follows the tragic story of a love triangle, ending in suicide, set in a small fishing village in the UK during the 19th Century. Titled in reference to the town where Marc’s grandparents grew up, the song also contemplates historical continuity and the concept of progress. Technology improves, but does that make people kind to each other? Connectivity increases, but does that make people happy? These ghosts haunt every moment of our hyper-modern lives, don’t you want to know how far they have come?

lyrics

LYRICS:

Yesterday, I came back from Scarborough
Yesterday, I walked back home
Eyes of flame, my girl back in Scarborough
Tears of rain, my girl at home

Scratching at your window
Don’t you want to know how far

So today, I’ll go back to Scarborough
Cards away, I can’t stay home
Gentle sway, when I came back from Scarborough
No more rain, my girl’s last song

Scratching at your window
Don’t you want to know how far
