Alt-pop four-piece Only The Poets have shared their new single ‘Every God I Pray To’. A highlight in their live set, they often perform this intimate track acoustically from within the audience, elevating the connection felt between the band and fans.
Frontman Tommy Longhurst says, “‘Every God I Pray To’ is about the breakup of a once seemingly perfect relationship, and the struggle that entails when having to come to terms with it. No matter how hard you try, and wherever you search to find that solace, you’re always led back to missing that person. The song was written in 2 hours before soundcheck on the Lewis Capaldi tour. It felt right to keep it stripped back to just vocal and keys, just as it was written. All year we’ve been playing it unplugged in the middle of the venue. It’s one my favourite moments of the set, there’s nowhere to hide singing in the middle of the room!”
Having played a huge sold-out EU tour in spring earlier this year which culminated in a triumphant sold-out slot at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Only The Poets announced a small ‘Homecoming’ UK tour, taking in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and London – all dates sold out.
