Yannis joined Georgie Rogers in the Radio X Studio to talk about the track, the first single off the band's new album, also called What Went Down. The video was unleashed at the weekend and showcased a new, heavier sound for the group.

"I'm excited to have people hear [the album]," he told Georgie. "It's probably the most savage track we've written."

He compared it to Inhaler from the band's last album, saying What Went Down was its "buddy".

"We were craving more songs that had that physical, manic energy...Writing a song like Inhaler broke that barrier that might have been there before where we were nervous or had reservations about certain types of heavy guitar stuff.

"That's gone now...it's a product of the fact that we feel more confident, we feel more liberated. We feel like we can do anything but not in too cocky a way."
