The Northern Irish duo added: "We aim to pull influences from a broad range of inspiration when we write music, our tracks often go through many iterations and directions before we settle on the final ingredients.

"We drew from IDM and footwork via '90s r'n'b, and it was amazing to work with Clara who totally gets that vibe. One of the early demos was 155bpm and another actually used the vocal from ‘Apricots’ (before it became ‘Apricots’) pitched up. We also had a hang drum melody version but in the end we decided to keep Clara's voice uncluttered."
