Track of the day #484: Stats – The Family Business

London’s Stats are back with their latest banger ‘The Family Business‘ taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Other People’s Lives’ which is set for release this Friday. It’s refreshing yet even danceable with melodic piano lines and soaring synth lines. Following on from previous single ‘Lose It’ this track combines the band’s funkier side with something a little more mellow.

Speaking of the track, Stats lead singer Ed Seed has said: “Families tell stories about themselves just like individual people do, and sometimes when those stories can’t hold any more, you get arguments and fights that are vicious in a way that only families can be. It’s horrifying but can also be weirdly liberating – at least it forces you to be real with each other.”

“How well do you know these people you call family anyway? They’ve always been around, but you don’t think about them like you would anyone else – sometimes you’re crueller, sometimes you’re kinder, but they’re not like any other relationships you have. Put yourself on any side of it, just try to understand.”

Stats are set to play the following gigs over the next few months including an in store performance at London’s Rough Trade East this Saturday:

16th Feb – Rough Trade East, London – 1.30pm
