Pieces of 8’ was one of the tracks played during the duo’s first ever live performance, which was for Boiler Room over five years ago and has been a central part of their live show since. It has been through many iterations since and is now part of Joy Orbison’s radio station on Grand Theft Auto. ‘Pieces of 8’ is a track that sounds as fresh today as if it had been made yesterday.
On the flip side, ‘Echo Rush’ was a track that Ed, in his own words,“Found on our laptop one day and had no idea when we wrote it.”It was made on a synthesiser called ‘the virus’ (LOL) and Ed remembers hearing the track for the first time in a long time when he was late for a festival appearance after a delayed flight. While running up to the stage, Tom had started playing ‘Echo Rush’ and the memory was sparked. From there the duo finished the track and have now found a timely release for it.
