Defeated was written in January of 2020 when band member Teddy C was going through a difficult time, feeling demoralised, burnt out and finding it tough to stay inspired. "Defeated was the very last song we wrote, and we were shattered" he says of the writing process.

"It was kind of like the last throw of the dice to find a song we really loved. Little did we know things were about to get a lot more difficult later in the year."

However, he adds, "The song is about trying your absolute best, but inevitably failing and the positives and negatives that come from that. It's a song about resilience and the ability to get back up when you’re down."
