When discussing the new album, frontman Shirley Lee said:
‘“Walk Away From Hollywood” is a celebration of walking away from your dreams, of having to change path halfway through your life. In the context of the album, it’s about coping when the band you’re in splits up, and you have to figure out what to do next, given that your dream has come to nothing.‘
With the support of producer Rhodri Marsden and contributions from Andy Lewis, Spearmint really feel as though this is their best record yet.
‘Holland Park’ will explore a wide range of emotions, from upset and anger to excitement and happiness.
