When they returned with ‘The Trench Coat Museum’ earlier this year, frontman James Smith explained how the song concerns reactions to the band’s increasing popularity, which he said “left us open to scrutiny and disdain just as much as love and appreciation.” He added: “Criticism is fair game and the internet is lawless so you gotta take it as it comes, but I definitely stopped searching for myself on Twitter the day I read that someone wanted to punch my lights out.” 

Smith went on: “‘The Trench Coat Museum’ is about how our perception of everything shifts both collectively and individually over time at speeds we simply can’t measure in the moment. Within whatever space in society we occupy, we often see our own beliefs as being at the absolute pinnacle of what should be the “cultural norm” and whilst the completely human trait of being self-assured can’t be helped, it’s an absolute hindrance on our collective process. We are one etc. (Are we fuck)”.
