Vertical Rhythm

Album: Music For Men (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Beth Ditto commented on this song to the NME June 27, 2009: "It's a sassy little song, it's in your face. It's a really old guitar part that had to be in the right place - it was really delicate and so strong at the same time. It was like an orchid, don't give it too much water, too much sunlight, in fact don't let it touch the ground ever."
