Great title

Waiting to hear properly via headphones but caught a few seconds of the jangly guitars at the start.

Looking forward to my tube journey now

you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Interesting choice for the second “single”. I’m assuming that’s the status as this is a “radio edit”? Couldn’t be a bigger contrast from Dreamland. What have they said, that Dreamland is this album’s So Hard? That makes sense on the basis of hearing this new song. I like it, autumnal and melancholy!

And the album's called Hotspot.

Didn't see that coming.

It’s already making me think of the white goods brand Hotpoint.

Electric Super Hotspot sounds like something an octogenarian might say in describing wireless technology.

It’s an odd title...

Awful, dreary and depressing I now understand the greatest hits tour as I wouldn’t have bought tickets to listen to this live.

Beautiful song. I like the eery atmosphere of the video. Totally different from the two previous album.

Pretty sure it’s just an album track, not the new single. I like it a lot, but definitely not strong enough to be a single.

It reminds me of a Christmas song, maybe because of the bells! I quite like it, but I could almost guess some of the rhyming words!
In a robot world, machinery is sighing, I thought I heard one crying
