“In the seemingly endless fire-fighting of everyday life in the city, it’s a prayer for an escape perhaps, even if only temporary,” say Only The Poets of their debut single Ceasefire. There is a clarity and truth to this, audibly. Ceasefire is a hugely impactful and memorable debut with a vivid sense of escapism.
Aside from their origins in the suburbs of Reading and London, not a great deal else is known about Only The Poets so far. The band has been busy making new fans far and wide in recent months, with their captivating live show. Now with Ceasefire, they deliver a truthful snap of soaring indie-pop that displays real ambition and craft – and packs a lasting emotional punch.
