Album: Cornershop & the Double 'O' Groove Of (2010)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is the debut track from British indie rock band Cornershop's seventh studio album, Cornershop & the Double 'O' Groove Of. The longplayer was released on the band's own label, Ample Play.
  • The song features the vocals of Bubbley Kaur, whom Cornershop writer and producer Tjinder Singh first overheard singing whilst in his local launderette. She originally guested on the band's 2004 single "Topknot," which got a remix treatment with a guest vocal by M.I.A.
  • Tjinder Singh commented on Cornershop & the Double 'O' Groove Of, "the full-length album was started on as early as 2005, and rather than rushing it, I thought I needed to take the time to put it out properly. It's the type of album I've wanted to have out since my youth and enthusiasm for raw Punjabi folk music - no auto-tune in sight."
