This is a track from British alternative rock band Klaxons' second studio album Surfing the Void. The disc was produced by Ross Robinson, the 'Godfather of Nu Metal,' who made his name producing records by Korn and Limp Bizkit.
Guitarist Simon Taylor-Davis told the NME June 5, 2010 that this song was their first fruit from the band's collaboration with Robinson: "To me, that was the first one that we nailed with Ross and it was like 'Wow! We can achieve anything with this guy!' I mean the amount of times we tried to play that and record that song… and the minute Ross touched it, it was just there."
The song's working title "The Parhelion," refers to a halo around the sun, an optical illusion caused by ice crystals in the air.
