Album: Love Letters (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The song uses maritime imagery to represent the friends that drift away when you become a parent. Joe Mount told NME: "It's about a place near where I grew up. Throughout my life, it was somewhere where I would go to do different things. And it's also about friendships that change as you grow up."
  • The song's music video sees an animated version of Metronomy going on a curious journey that takes in on the way classic moments from some of their previous clips.

    The video was directed by Daniel Brereton and his team of animators. Brereton previously worked with the band on their "Hypnose" and "Heartbreaker" clips and has also directed several visuals for Kate Nash including the ones for "Do Wah Doo" and "Kiss That Grrrl."
