Yowsers! These guys don’t seem to be able to stop creating super-slick earworms, and new tune Pass The Lighter is very much true to form, albeit with a fresh air of refinement to their usual upbeat pop sound.

Speaking about the new single, The Modern Strangers‘ frontman Max Davenport says: “We wanted to change the set up for our tour, so people who may have seen us before get a set they’re not expecting. We’ve had this song Pass The Lighter sitting in the demo pile for a while and decided it would be great to put out just before tour and to play live for the first time at these UK venues.”

The upcoming dates are their first UK headline tour, taking in Southampton tomorrow night, followed by Bristol, Glasgow, Birmingham, Liverpool and London over the coming days. Grab tickets here.
