Foals kick off their third album Holy Fire with this instrumental. Their vocalist Yannis Philippakis told NME: "We all got entranced by the groove: we've got these recordings where it's 25 minutes long, because there's just something really cyclical about the loop. We just wanted it on the record and that evoked a lot of that swampiness and there's a menace in it. Plus it cleans the palette, it burns away, it allows the record to start fresh."
Several Holy Fire tracks including this one feature the sound of bees in the mix. The buzzing noise of the honey-producing insects was recorded Down Under with Australian musician Jono Ma long before the London sessions for the album with Flood and Alan Moulder. Philippakis told NME: "There's something sonically incredible about the way bees sound. Its fu--ing great. Also, we recorded some stuff in Australia with Jono Ma - he set up some mics outside, there was insect life everywhere getting recorded as we did vocal takes. I wanted that swampy. organic prescience. And Bees' fates are inextricably linked with our own. Its such a cataclysmic event (their decline) but its tiny (in comparative scale to humans). I like the fact that its this tiny thing but its huge. A weird double perspective."
