Songfacts®:

  • This anthemic track was released as the first single from Empire of the Sun's Every Ocean Tells a Story album. The song also soundtracked Pernod Ricard's Absolut Vodka TV advertising campaign, "Absolut Nights."

    "Our music is about more than just being memorable," the band told Billboard magazine. "We aim to make music that transcends and takes you to another dimension, creating an experience beyond the earth and out of the ordinary that sticks with you long after the night is over, much like Absolut Nights."
