Fronted by vocalist David Kelly, with Sam Salkeld on guitar and Matt Wagstaff on drums, the new EP, the band's first music since 2020"s standalone single Grows is the product of Kelly's 2020 return to Chichester following a stint in London.
Reacquainted with the town he grew up in, Whatever Happens, It's Alright Now finds Kelly reinspired; across four brand new tracks he reflects upon early life, childhood memories and the emotions stirred up by his return.
Lacing evocative, retrospective lyricism throughout simmering grooves and vibrant, sun-soaked guitars - the EP, shaped by both the words they would tell to their younger selves, and the words they choose to live by in the present day, marks another level of growth and maturity in both Suns Up's sound and songwriting.
Looking back on the unease of being in a relationship which feels out of sync, it's a realisation that it's perfectly normal for a relationship to need work.
Speaking on the song, Suns Up elaborate:
"I think it's a phase that a lot of people go through where you're really trying to make things work, but you feel like you're going round in circles.
"It's okay for relationships to need work, and it's important you can look back together and say "Whatever Happened, It's Alright Now"."
