In Their Words: “‘Stitch in Time’ is a song exploring the saying, ‘A stitch in time saves nine.’ Based on the idea that if you can sort something out at the right moment in time it will save you a lot more work down the line. I was thinking about that line a lot particularly in relation to trauma, both my own and of those closest to me. This idea of reaching back through time to be with someone in a difficult moment and just being with them and letting them know that it’s not ok. The idea of trying to reach someone before that moment just becomes hidden and then woven into the fabric of their character. A theme of some of the newer songs is fears around parenthood and becoming a dad. Recognising that I don’t want my daughter to inherit some of the difficult things I had to go through or develop any of my unhealthy ways I have of dealing with stuff.” — Andrew Davie
