Album: Courting the Squall (2015)

  • Lyrics
  • The first single from Elbow frontman Guy Garvey's debut solo album, Courting the Squall, finds him searching for the truth.

    The video was filmed at The Carlton Club in Whalley Range, Manchester by long time Elbow visual collaborators Soup Collective. The clip sees Garvey and his band focus the attentions of a crowd of excited women and was inspired by a documentary on London's '60s strip clubs.
  • Garvey told The Sun that his girlfriend, Tipping the Velvet actress Rachael Stirling, is "directly responsible" for this song.
