Join The Dots was recorded by the band with Dan Carey who also produced their 2012 debut. Talking to NME in October, bassist Maxim Barron explained: “‘Toy’ was recorded and mastered in two weeks. ‘Join The Dots’ took twice as long. We experimented a lot more. There are more vocal harmonies. It just much more sophisticated sonically.”
