Songfacts®:

  • Filthy Dukes are a synthpop band from London, England. This song was taken from their debut album Nonsense in the Dark.
  • This song features She's Got Me Dancing singer Tommy Sparks. Olly Dixon (sampling, electronic percussion, electric guitar) told Gigwise why Filthy Dukes hooked up with the Swedish artist: "This is our big, unashamedly pop moment. We recorded the music and just knew it needed a great pop vocal. Tommy Sparks is a really talented writer and singer, somewhere between Talking Heads and Prince. He sent back his vocal after a one night and we just knew that was it. It scared us a little with how pop it was but we loved it, still do, it's our Italo pop moment."
