Album: Leave Me Alone (2016)
  • songfacts ®
  • This track was written about a friend of guitarist Carlotta Cosials, who suffered in love. She told Q magazine: "This is actually about a friend of mine who was heartbroken and was in the sort of moment when you are at rock bottom but still want to party a lot."
  • The Hinds band members are unenthused about the recording of the song's vocals. Co-vocalist and guitarist Ana Perrote admitted to The Line Of Best Fit: "Back in the studio, we often got drunk really fast to record the voices. It's like when we play live. It really helps us get all the embarrassment out and helps us feel what we first felt when we wrote the lyrics.

    This time we got too drunk but we only had ten days in the studio so we had to choose one of the takes. A good thing we have is that in time we start forgetting that we hate some mistakes and we start liking them, so I guess it's not that bad!"
