I Close My Eyes

Album: Once Upon a Time in the West (2007)


  • In an interview with I Like Music, Hard-Fi drummer Steve Kemp was asked which track he enjoyed laying down the most: "It was a track called 'I Close My Eyes.' We'd just gone through this really difficult period of really analyzing everything and there were a few songs on there that we just had to tweak and tweak to try and get them right, and we just thought right, f--k it, lets just have a couple of days off and we'll try something else out. And we tried 'I Close My Eyes' and we got the whole thing done in about a day. It just went wack and that was it. So we really enjoyed playing it, the way that we just did it... my first drum take made the final version. So yeah, it was fun."
