The band's vocalist Alex Kapranos told Sunday Times Culture
magazine: "I don't see the point of going, 'I'm really, really in love.' There's nothing more boring than that." More interesting he said, are "The subtleties, the unexpected twists that emotions can bring when characters collide. Walk Away is an example of that. You're trying to impose almost a hard, cold face on extreme emotions, and finding yourself undermined by your own passion."
