"Hallelujah (So Low)" was partly influenced by the call to prayer reverberating around the city of Istanbul. The Editors commented to Consequence of Sound
regarding its sound:
"This song goes from tight and rhythmic to expansive and shimmery. It's then slapped round the face with a gigantic guitar riff, which sounds like it's possibly being played by Dimebag Darrell and Skrillex at the same time. Heavy."
