Album: The Bones of What You Believe (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of two songs on The Bones of What You Believe that features Martin Doherty singing lead rather than regular vocalist Lauren Mayberry. The other is "You Caught the Light" - respectively they close out sides A and B of the LP. Doherty told Consequence of Sound that the trio are meticulous with sequencing and "don't buy into the idea that the album, as a format, is over."
  • The song's music video was directed by Sing J. Lee (Gorgon City's "Ready For Your Love," Charli XCX's "Boom Clap"). The clip blends a trippy anime story about space and loss with footage of Doherty singing the track.
