This was inspired by frontman Jonathan Higgs wish to write "an orchestral, sort-of 'Eleanor Rigby
' quartet song," but "it got a bit out of control." Higgs told The Line Of Best Fit
: "We slaved for ages on it. It was originally just orchestral with a far more electronic accompaniment but we really worked hard to try and get the rest of the band involved in it."
Bassist Jeremy Pritchard added that he and the other two band members are "kind of the sides-men on that song." "And we're perfectly happy to be," he continued, "really, because the strings arrangement is central to it. And if you take that away we're not really contributing much. The beat is important and that was vital - finding the right thing for Mike to play, a happy back-beat [gestures drumming]".
