We Are The Battery Human

Album: The Beachcomber's Windowsill (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is a call to arms to unshackle ourselves from laptop culture. Vocalist Brian Briggs told the NME that he doesn't believe there's anything wrong with the internet as such. He explained: "I believe that the extent to which our society, both work and home, tends to be indoors has meant that people have very much lost touch with the outdoors and actually suffer as a consequence."
