This breezy nocturnal jam finds Duke Dumont slowing the pace down from his usual house-thumping material. According to the press release, its prominently sizzling synths were inspired by Nicolas Winding Refn's 2011 film Drive.
The song was released as the lead single from Blasé Boys Club Part 1, the first of a series of EPs from Duke Dumont. "I've been thinking of adapting the release format from a traditional album for a while," explained Duke. "The Blasé Boys Club series will be my outlet for music which would have previously been considered songs for my albums.
"Rather than the old format of the LP, the new way allows me the freedom to bring music to people quicker, and more regularly," he added.

"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
