Album: Velociraptor! (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist and principal songwriter Serge Pizzorno told Q magazine this breezy electro floorfiller was inspired by being in a club in Paris and hearing French electronic music duo Daft Punk. He said: "I had this riff that reminded me of my raving days. It's about being in a flash club full of rich men, looking at the clock and missing home a bit. A simple sentiment amid the madness."
