Neat Little Rows by Elbow
Album: Build a Rocket Boys!Released: 2011
This was the first single released from British alternative rock band Elbow's fifth studio album, Build a Rocket Boys!. The song received its first radio airplay on January 13, 2011 and was released on February 27, 2011.
The song is set around the time frontman Guy Garvey was kicked out of home for giving up on college, when the Catholic-raised singer had lost his faith in God. He explained to Q magazine: "I'm talking to myself at 20 with the benefit of hindsight. Having seen my friends coping with how difficult it is to have kids, the one thing you never say to your kids is, Am I a good enough dad? Because they're supposed to take it for granted you are. But it's scary as f--k."
The song's music video was produced by The Soup Collective and filmed at Blueprint Studios where Build a Rocket Boys! was recorded.
