The lead single from El Pintor, this song was written by frontman Paul Banks on a balcony in Buenos Aires, Argentina on the last day of the band's 2010 tour.
Banks also plays bass guitar on the track. He has been Interpol's bassist since the departure of Carlos Dengler in 2010.
Brandon Curtis of Secret Machines guests on keyboards. He contributed to most of tracks on the El Pintor album.
El Pintor is not only Spanish for "the painter," but did you spot it is also an anagram of Interpol?
The black and white video was co-directed by Banks with Sophia Peer (The National, Paramore, Yeasayer). The clip features dimly lit shots of Interpol performing the tune contrasted against footage of surfers challenging waves.
