Album: Royal Blood (2014)


  • Vocalist Mike Kerr told the story of this song to Drowned in Sound. "That was born out of putting guitar strings on a bass, and at first it didn't really work to be honest, as the strings were a bit loose," he said. "But that riff came out of it."

    "That's another good example of when we get into a room together and how one small idea suddenly turns into a whole song," Kerr continued. "I remember actually going into the studio with that, and quite a sizable amount of it wasn't finished but it really came together in the studio. It's one of my favorite moments on the album actually. It's just a bit happier for a moment, which is a good contrast I think."
