The new 7" features the single, 'Romantic' which is a song about struggling to fit in, feeling down and finding comfort in romance.

Connecting with someone because you both feel like you don't belong. "I gravitate towards things that bring me down, I always have, at least I know that now.

Never forward, I thought all I had was the past. I used to think each birthday would be my last." "I sat inside on the brightest, warmest days.

Everything I loved would always run away. Misery taught me everything I knew and then there was you." The B-Side is a cover of the Wedding Present song 'Octopussy" from their 1991 album Seamonsters.

David Gedge himself said about the cover "Thanks... nice. Always interesting to hear different interpretations!" "God knows I've always had to fear the worst, but not that time.

You brought me home and then you kissed me first. You were all mine." "A celebration of personal freedom" - DIY Magazine "Hekt's solo debut is part self-interrogation and part community offering, serving up tiny bursts of joy and doubt as refuge for anyone navigating a similar path." - Pitchfork "A first-person directness and grunge-schooled contrasting of melody" - Mojo
