Manchester up-and-comers Document late last month came through with their impressive single ‘The Spy Who Came In from the Cold’ — this week, they're set to reveal even more music, with their debut EP A Camera Wanders All Night due to be released tomorrow, March 20th.

In an interview with Yuck! Magazine last month, Alex from the band noted that the track was inspired by John le Carré’s novel of the same name. He said on the single, “It highlights themes closely followed in the book, such as the idea of mortality, ideological divide caused by cold war politics and betrayal. The main focus of my attention when writing the song was to convey the alienation that the protagonist Leamas faced throughout the story, which is a state that I believe a lot of people face in today's society.”

If you love Document’s sharp lyricism and intricate songwriting as much as we do, be sure to check out their EP tomorrow — until then, listen to ‘The Spy Who Came In from the Cold’ below.
