Songfacts®:

  • This song celebrates the possibility of meeting other forms of life. It was inspired by an experience when Basement Jaxx' Felix Buxton and singer/songwriter Kristyna Myles were looking out of the studio window at the London skyline. Buxton explained to The Independent that they saw, "something very still and glinting in the sky, like light reflecting off a car." The pair grabbed their phones and filmed the object as it looked like a UFO, but were unable to zoom in enough to get a detailed image.
