I Am Kloot are an English band formed in Manchester in 1999 by vocalist and guitarist John Bramwell, bassist Peter Jobson and drummer Andy Hargreaves. This is a track from their fifth album, Sky At Night, which was co-produced by Elbow's Guy Garvey and Craig Potter.
The album is loosely themed around late-night drinking and this song deals in fictional form with a couple of drinking establishments frequented by Kloot and Elbow. Bramwell told The Guardian: "If one song set the mood (for the album) it was 'To the Brink'." Hargreaves added: "That set the mood that it was going to be a late-night, smoky vibe."
"Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man deals with lead singer John Gourley becoming a "rebel just for kicks" after having a daughter and settling down. "It's hard to be a punk when you're thinking about your baby daughter at home," he says.
