It seems like only yesterday that all of London was dancing to Cymbals’ brilliant last album The Age of Fracture. But it wasn’t yesterday. It was January 2014.

Now they’re back with Light in Your Mind, a stunning collection of moody electro and personal tales that will speak truth to anyone who has been trying to stick it out in this grey, puddle-filled shithole of London since the last album.

Here to lighten things up a bit is singer Jack Cleverly, talking Rentokil and John Mayer, as he answers the twelve short questions you know and love.
