Songfacts®:

  • Metronomy frontman Joe Mount told NME: "This was the first thing we recorded for the English Riviera, so it was almost a test track for the studio. At that point I wasn't really sure how I was going to handle myself in a real studio, so finishing this felt like a big deal. It's still my favorite track from that record."
