This is the first single to be released from the Alternative Rock duo The Ting Tings second album, Sounds From Nowheresville
. The song was made available on December 27, 2011 and was the duo's first release since "Hands
" in October 2010.
The duo decided to title the album Sounds From Nowheresville to reflect how the music was conceived. "We spent so long on the road — recording music and touring — that the whole musical element of the album came from everywhere and nowhere," Ting Ting Jules de Martino explained to Spin magazine.
The self-shot music video was made on De Martino's iPhone in a dusty skateboarding bowl in Alicante, Spain.
