      Amid the everyday noise of ‘Actual Life’, mid-way track ‘Me (Heavy)’ quietly and sombrely details the deteriorating illness of a close friend in a hospital ICU. “I want to run in there and steal you out / Unplug the wires and kiss your mouth,” Fred intones over brooding synths, laying himself bare as a vocalist. “I think I’m still working out how I feel about singing,” he tells NME. “Often I’m hesitant, and it’s been a case of people like lovely Romy from The xx or my brother encouraging me to sing on record. But with a track like ‘Me (Heavy)’, it would be weird if I wasn’t doing the vocals because it’s such a personal song.”

      Just discovered this track today. It is superb! Eager to soak in the rest of the album.
