Songfacts®:

  • This song is about how we vainly try to forget disappointment through short-lived hedonistic pursuits. It was first performed live by the Kaisers during their 2013 shows at London's Hyde Park and Leeds Arena.
  • The video was shot by James Slater (Mark Owen's "Stars," White Lies' "There Goes Our Love Again") in the Yorkshire Dales, not far from the band's hometown, It finds frontman Ricky Wilson strolling across the moors. The director told Promo News about the filming of the clip. "We shot the video in a jovially named place called Blubberhouses which is right on the southern cusp of the Yorkshire Dales, and not too far from where I'm from," he said. "Its also just up the road from where the band hail. I think we all just hankered after a bit of home cooking."

    "I've never shot in Yorkshire before, I should do it more often," he continued. "The landscapes are great and as soon as DOP Jonathan Isles put the anamorphic lens on, it looked like a Western setting (if you ignore the rain, the wind, the grey skies and the lack of desert and Cacti)."

    "The strip of land we shot on leant itself well to the one shot idea," Slater continued, "and thanks to the fantastic cast, crew (who all seemed to know each other from Heartbeat) and a really strong performance from Ricky, we had the take we needed after about ten attempts."
