Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Andy Brown singing about being broke. He told Capital FM about the song's creation. "It's a fun, upbeat song that we wrote actually quite a while ago actually and we've been holding onto the hook and the idea of where is the money," he explained. "Basically we wrote it when were touring round in the back of a van and we were unsigned and sleeping on each other's couches. We kept the idea and developed it in the studio and it turned into this big, pop anthem."
  • Drummer Adam Pitts explained the background to the party-themed video. "We did a video for the track last week. We did it in Shoreditch," he said. "It was really cool we had about 20 of our fans, we did a competition to win the chance to be in the video. We had about twenty of our mates as well so it was a really cool atmosphere and kinda like a party video, just having fun with not a lot of money, which is what the song is about."
