“This song is about writing songs,” noted frontman Martin Courtney in regards to Daniel’s lead single. “I think ‘Water Underground’ is like the unconscious, the mysterious part of your brain where creativity comes from. The constant flow of music in the back of your head. You get an idea while driving or walking the dog or something and you want to hold on to it.”
