October 19th sees the releases of new single Prime Number, Lizzy says “ It’s basically an apology song, for people close to me for being too self-obsessed and narcissistic to the point of pushing them away. “Your love is better when it’s in 4/4” is a nod to myself trying too hard to be cool and I’m probably better off just being plain ole me (4/4 being the most used time signature in western music and we regularly slag ourselves off for using it far too much- but it works)
