The four-piece's songwriter Andrew Still said: “People are complicated. The way we present ourselves to the outside world is often very different to how we are when we’re on our own, so we really wanted to capture that in Master Of The Game.

"When I was writing the lyrics, I tried to put myself into the mindset of someone who has complete control over how others perceive them; someone who has the presence that so many people long for.”

Featuring Algorithm's signature synth and guitar sound with Amy Mullen’s vocals, the band's latest offering is a departure from their debut signalling a wider musical canvas and revealing deeper, darker colours than they unveiled in their debut.

There is also an accompanying video made by Andrew's talented 13-year-old daughter Eva which tells the song's story – and immortalises the band in animated life!

Andrew said: "When Eva was younger, she used to draw people with no faces – and I thought that would make a really great central character for the video, to represent how we all put masks on to suit different situations in life.

"Eva then took inspiration from the lyrics and the sound of the music to really make the video her own."

The single is out on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes. More info: algorithmband.co.uk and you can watch Eva's video for yourself:
