“When writing ‘Dead Run’, Ricky and I explored lyrics we had written about people in our lives who had struggled with addiction,” said Anchor Lane’s own lead singer Conor Gaffney.
“It was a special moment when we realised that we’d both written lyrics at different times which worked so well together and that really gave us a strong foundation to build on.”
