  • Emerging from the Yorkshire town where much of the British soap Emmerdale is filmed, post-punk revival quartet The Chevin started making waves in Europe when this song was included on the soundtrack for the video game, FIFA 13. Frontman Coyle Girelli told The Sun about penning this song: "It came out of rehearsal. We wrote the end section and then I went away and wrote the rest of the song on my own. It took a good two weeks to finish. It wasn't purposely meant to be sporty, but it certainly does have that football montage vibe about it when you hear it."
