Brendan, who lost his father six months ago, found solace in the music, making it an intensely emotional experience for him.

The sunrise here, everything was kind of culminating with that final song, which was Yeah, pretty amazing. And I actually lost my dad six months ago as well. So it was very emotional listening

For John in Sydney, the album resonated on a profound level as he dealt with personal loss. ‘But Here We Are’ provided solace and comfort, speaking directly to his journey of grief. The album’s lyrics stand out, showcasing the band’s ability to tackle sensitive subjects with authenticity and grace. John, like many others, found it challenging to select a single favorite track, as every song on the album stands out as a musical gem.

I thought it was awesome from first to last chord. it’s really hard to pick the singles from it because they were all bangers. Cracking Fooies album. The thing that sets it apart from other albums of the past, it’s just the lyrics. The way it deals with grief is just awesome. I lost both my parents this year and it really spoke to me.
