The songs are largely born from experiences, often specific to Kiaran in circumstance but largely universal in emotion. Whether despairing over the ambitions lost to people doing McJobs on ‘Dreams’ or dissecting the various stages of relationships on ‘Waiting’ or in the album’s heartbroken, epic finale and title track, Kiaran also found inspiration from the stories and circumstances of people in his hometown. As a B-Side to ‘One Day’ they also dropped an acoustic piano version of single ‘NYC (Sing It Loud)’ which is a beautifully emotional stripped back version of the song. “The other side was wishing certain people could be there to see it with me. It opens up with a mass of immediately energetic guitars and Kiaran’s effortless vocals leading the listener to an infectious stadium sized chorus, backed by subtle but effective vocal harmonies. “I wanna see the world with you,” Kiaran sings, imagining “getting lost in the city for a day” with someone left behind. The driving ‘I Want It All’ reminisces over a gloriously stormy festival weekend in Wales, along with other memorable moments Kiaran has spent with a special someone. Naturally, it’s a collection that leans towards the melancholy, but vitally there’s hope for better times ahead too. Alex Pearson
