Vocalist Yannis Philippakis told NME
that this is one of several Foals songs that are "like a little film still." He gave the examples of "Miami
"and "Spanish Sahara
" as falling into the same category.
Yannis added that the "little story that's semi-articulated" in this song's lyrics, is "to do with being a fugitive with your loved one and then a terrible car accident happens and you're haunted by somebody's memory.
It felt smoky" he concluded, "it had a kind of soul influence and it felt like we hadn't done it before."
