Winners

Album: Klapp Klapp (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The B-side to "Klapp Klapp," this song appears to be poking fun at the whole concept of success. However, vocalist Yukimi Nagono insisted to The Guardian it's not entirely satirical. "I'm definitely not saying, 'We are winners!' It's almost a cliché; it's saying the journey is what counts," she said. "The lyrics are: 'May the road be long. Let something drag on. Cos it's feeling so nice.' And that's exactly how we're thinking about things right now."
