Outsiders

Album: Night Thoughts (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Brett Anderson told NME about this portrait of secret lovers living for the moment. "I was thinking about my parents when I was writing that, drifting away and trying to make a life for themselves in the early '60s," he said. "I had a romantic vision of them."
  • Keyboard player Neil Codling commented to Uncut: "We've always drawn people who share that outsider culture. Outsiders is a simple statement of what we are, along the lines of 'Trash' and 'Beautiful Ones,' a rallying cry for the excluded."
