Songfacts®:

  • Although this song isn't the first Our Lady Peace tune to contain handclaps, guitarist Steve Mazur says it is the first OLP tune to feature the effect so prominently. Mazur adds, "I think the handclaps just go along with the beat."
  • Continuing with the motif of trying new things on Curve, Our Lady Peace decided to record the individual drums on this song separately. Guitarist Steve Mazur told us in 2012 that the idea behind this was to get "a bombastic live, almost distorted, drum sound" on the track.
