Skylight

Album: Opposites (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Simon Neil told NME he feels this song, "sounds like it should soundtrack Terminator 7." He added: "We got help from Clint Mansell, who scored all the Darren Aronofsky movies. We're maximalist when it comes to recording, and he's minimalist, so we spent a good few days sending the song backwards and forwards. He kept peeling things off, giving it back, we'd put more on it."
