Album: Opposites (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track of Biffy Clyro's sixth album, Opposites. Frontman Simon Neil told NME: "It's a song of two halves and a nicely bipolar way to start a Biffy record."
  • Neil said to NME regarding the song's organ sound: "We recorded the church organ in Pasadena in the largest Baptist church in California. It was more powerful than any amplifier I've ever sat in front of. "
  • Opposites was recorded at Santa Monica's The Village studio, the same place where Glasvegas conceived their second album, Euphoric Heartbreak.
