Only The Poets share new single 'Gone By Now' and announce a brand new EP

  • 2 min read

Alt-pop four-piece Only The Poets have announced their much anticipated, ‘One More Night’ EP set to drop on June 7th this year. Alongside the announcement, the band have also shared fan favourite track, ‘Gone By Now’.

Featuring the euphoric One More Night plus six new rip-roaring songs, the ‘One More Night’ EP sees the band at their most captivating, consolidating their electrifying synch-pop sound and illuminating the heartfelt emotion in their lyrics.

“We’ve taken a lot of our influences from current pop intertwined with Brit-pop and experimented with vocal layers and harmonies,” says frontman Tommy Longhurst. “At the back of our minds we’re constantly thinking about how these songs will sound live. We really wanted to go for that big, expansive stadium filler sound.”

Currently embarking on a massive 30-date tour across Europe + UK, the band kick off the tour with the release of new single ‘Gone By Now’ – a song that has long been a firm fan favourite. Produced and mixed by Mark Ralph (RAYE, Years & Years), ‘Gone By Now’ soars with pulsating synths and choppy guitars, wrapped around Tommy’s aching vocals.

Travelling from country to country, the new EP was recorded on the road, the band setting up recording equipment and cutting vocals whilst touring “We’re excited that so much of this EP was done just the four of us, and a lot of the production was done by Marcus (drums) and Clem (guitar). Feeling inspired and recording whilst playing shows was a cool way of working, we’d not done that before.”

Only The Poets, comprising of Tommy Longhurst, bassist Andy “Roo” Burge, guitarist Clem Cherry and drummer Marcus Yates, have established themselves in just a few short years as one of the UK’s biggest emerging live acts. Unsigned until the start of 2023, the band’s DIY ethos saw them build things from the ground up, from playing student house parties, pub circuits and small venues to selling out 1,600-capacity venues in the UK and across Europe last year.

2024 has already seen the band kick off a massive run of 22 European shows taking in venues across the continent including Milan, Krakow, Berlin, Prague, Oslo and Krakow, ending in Lille on the 11th April. The band will embark on a UK tour in June.
