Album: Walking With Elephants (2014)
Charted: 6

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of the Walking With Elephants EP, the first release by Ten Walls on the BOSO label. Speculation accumulated concerning Ten Walls' identity after his first few releases, but by the time this song was dropped, it was generally assumed to be Lithuanian deep house DJ and producer Mario Basanov.
  • The haunting instrumental began circulating online at the beginning of 2014 and quickly gained support from the likes of Tale of Us, Sasha, Maceo Plex and Pete Tong who named it his "essential new tune" on his global radio show. After being released as a single, it became Ten Walls' first UK Top 10 hit.
  • The song's music video was directed by Nez (Lily Allen's "The Fear, Bruno Mars' "The Lazy Song") and filmed off the Dungeness, Kent coast. It features a demonstration of the sport of flyboarding, as we see ambiguous costumed characters leaping through the waves powered by water jetpacks.
