“‘Replace’ is about the chaos of grief and the realisation that you cannot recreate someone once they have disappeared. It explores the multiple forms grieving can take – questioning relationships, exploring spirituality, substance abuse, depression and a yearning to grow as you are forced to become someone you no longer recognise.

Initially it was written like a stream of consciousness. Without thinking too much about it, Patrick James Pearson and I both wrote down random images that could fit the melody. By making them non-linear it felt as if we were reflecting the inconsistent and unpredictable shape grief takes. The verses are in 6/4 which suggests this feeling of not knowing where you are. In the chorus we shift to 4/4 with the only certainty – that the person you loved cannot be replaced.”
