Broken Bottles

  • This is one of three previously unreleased tracks that were originally recorded during the Swoon sessions that were later included on the "Seasick" single. "Seasick" was released in a 10" vinyl record format on November 25, 2011 for Record Store Day's "Back to Black Friday" event.
  • Frontman Brian Aubert explained to Billboard magazine that this song underwent a complete transformation from its original version. He said: "When we first started writing it, it went in so many directions. It got quiet, then loud. It had like seven parts. It made sense at the time. Even the producer was excited. As we wrote more songs, every time we'd come back to it, it was just terrible. It's all over the place. It felt a little pedestrian. In hour 11 before we went in, I took it home and tore it apart. It's much smaller and much tighter. We kept the one part we liked and wrote something around it."
