  • This warped R&B take on Peaches' "F--k The Pain Away" features Swedish singer Erik Hassle. "We always look for something with an edge," Gorgon City's Matthew Robson-Scott told Q magazine.
  • Robson-Scott told Q the story of the song: "We wrote this in LA at Capitol Records," he said. "This track always reminds us of watching Erik in the vocal booth with sunglasses on completely going in singing this song!"

    "When Erik first told us his idea for the hook, we weren't sure 'f--k the pain away' is pretty strong. When he sang it it just sounded right! It's our most R&B sounding track on Sirens, it's a seduction song, but with a kind of dark side to it."
