THE MUSIC FILES FAVOURITE TRACK: Process. This track would just be sensational at a festival … the ideal track to get everyone hyped. It’s the lyrics in particular that really stand out for me – it’s more statements than anything else totally leaving listeners in a trance. Process is the type of song you only need to hear the once for it to leave an impact on you… I’ll certainly be making a point to go see them when gigs return and boy what a gig it will be!
