In ​‘Make Do’, the band take a fresh approach to gypsy jazz, ​whilst still maintaining their characteristic upbeat blend of guitars and violin, enhanced by high, silvery vocals. The lyrics explore the nostalgic feelings associated with getting over someone or something, but then deciding that you may actually be better off without them.


On this gloomy day, I feel so sunny anyway
There’s no limit to what I could do
After the rain I’ll go sit in the soft September shade
It might feel a little different without you
But without you I’ll make do

Grab your hat and bag and leave your troubles by the door
Don’t waste time dreaming of what you adore
Walk past the café and the memories that were made
You know that they might not ever fade
But without you I’ll get by, maybe I will even fly!

And life could be doo doo!
