A stunning track with glistening vocals, “Rain in Cuba” is dedicated to those perfect moments that turn out…not so perfect. Commenting on the track Sam notes “They’d called the beat Rain In Cuba and we thought it was a strong starting point. I think it happens to a lot of us, where you go on a romantic holiday to get some space from the rest of the world, and end up falling out and arguing the whole time. I think you can hear all our individual influences on the track, but they blend together smoothly too.” A perfect tune to sooth those not so perfect moments is one you undoubtedly have to replay on a summers night.
