Speaking about the new single, Howie says; “I wrote ‘Some Believer, Sweet Dreamer’ walking around London. I wanted to write something that had a kind of epic ness to it, like those great 60s/70’s songs by Neil Young, Nick Drake, Pink Floyd and all that. I had this chord someone had showed me, it’s in a tune by Love, a magnificent sounding chord. So I was playing around with that and came up with this little pattern that I thought was pretty cool. Over the next couple of days when I was was out and about, I had this pattern in mind and started to make up some words for it. I wasn’t really thinking about what or who it might be about, I just liked how the words sounded together. I mean, it’s probably me singing to me, you know, but it could be about anyone who’s moved around some, who’s chasing something, and I think we all feel like that sometimes."
