Ahead of their ‘One More Night’ EP out June 7th, alt-pop four-piece Only The Poets share another taste from the project, the long-awaited ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend’ – Listen HERE / Pre-Order EP HERE.

Featuring the euphoric singles ‘One More Night’ & ‘Gone By Now’ plus five new rip-roaring songs, the ‘One More Night’ EP sees the band at their most captivating, consolidating their electrifying synth-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.”

Enticing fans with live performances whilst on their massive 30-date tour across Europe + UK, the track quickly became an anticipated number in their sets, cementing itself as a bonafide fan-favourite with a razor sharp, crowd commanding chorus.

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, 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. The band embark on a UK tour in June – full list of dates below.
