Songfacts®:

  • The video for this song about a love affair between man and drum machine sees Joe Mount performing live in Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport. The Metronomy frontman is joined by the band's drummer Anna Prior, with choreography duo I COULD NEVER BE A DANCER (Carine Charaire and Olivier Casamayou) also appearing.
  • The clip was filmed in one take. Speaking to Noisey, Mount said: "I love one-take videos and I love aeroplanes... and airports."

    "I also love it when you start something with modest expectations and they are exceeded," he continued. "I've always quite fancied doing a live music video and this was never really meant to be that, but it kind of is now."
