  • The song opens with a Johann Sebastian Bach chorale from the German Baroque composer's "St. Matthew Passion."

    The St. Matthew Passion was a musical composition written by Bach for solo voices, double choir and double orchestra. It set chapters 26 and 27 of the Gospel of Matthew to music, with interspersed chorales and arias.
  • The music video features a giant snake being driven through city streets. Cellist Grace Chatto told HMV.com: "We spent months making the video, because Jack (Patterson, bass guitar and keyboards) made the gold snake from scratch and made it move around London."
