Album: Automata I (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Dustie Waring sent the rest of the band around four different variations of the beginning of this song before they started piecing it together. Bassist Dan Briggs recalled to TeamRock:

    "We didn't want to do much with this song, we knew we wanted something concise before Blot and the beginning of the second half, which is a massive 13-minute long track. The chords in the chorus at 2:12 reference back to the main riff that goes throughout the beginning of House Organ – but with a different spin on the vocal and key melody. The ending is an even slower and more sparse version of the beginning, just kind of letting the song float off as it ends with drums."
