Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jehnny Beth described this taunting one night stand song's meaning to NME as being about, "the sense that we've very dispersed as people. We're becoming like smoke, almost: we're not touched by things anymore."
  • The song is a new recording of The Savage's debut single "Husbands" b/w "Flying To Berlin," which was released on Jehnny Beth's record label Pop Noire in June 2012.
  • The song was named after a grim 1970 John Cassavetes film which tells the story of three middle class men in the throes of a midlife crisis.
