  • This rocker finds Catfish lead singer Van McCann singing of a girl who provokes tug-of-war of feelings in him:

    I've gotta give it to you
    You give me problems
    And made me give in to you


    "Kathleen is the reason you start drinking," McCann told Rolling Stone. "She's the one you call at three in the morning despite knowing she's the reason you went out drinking in the first place. You go around knowing you shouldn't, and before you know it, she's got your clothes off. She's that kind of person that everyone's been infatuated with - even when they know it's not the right path."
  • The lyric video features unauthorized clips of McCann's favorite actor Ewan McGregor. After McGregor's daughter showed him the video, the movie star tweeted: "Don't know quite what's going on here but I'm quite flattered by the Bottlemen."
