Better Than Lego starts off with a laugh track and a voice-over of the title’s name being chanted before dropping away, with the crunchy guitar riff taking the spotlight. Airy vocals float around in the track, with hints of reminiscences and longing woven into the tone. The track immerses you into the world of Midway, as they take you on a trip down memory lane and guide you through the streets of Newcastle.
