Mojo magazine May 2009 asked Antony Hegarty where the line "I'm finding my rhythm as I twist in the snow" came from. He replied: "I just made it up. We're all twisting in the snow, trying to figure out who we are and how we can be in balance and harmony with the environment. I had this idea of a seizure, of being totally out of control physically, and then looking back on it and seeing choreography to it. I put to a waltz for that reason. It's formal. You look at it from a local perspective and none o it makes sense, but then you step back and see that it's a pattern. Even in times of trauma everything is as it should be. Seemingly terrible events form you. There's tenderness to things being broken."
This was released as the first single from The Crying Light.
