Album: The House That Dirt Built (2009)


  • The Heavy guitarist Dan Taylor wrote this song with help from their lead singer Kelvin Swaby, who told us: "It's a relationship between yourself and whatever the entity is. But Dan believed that his house was haunted for 'Stuck.' (laughing) Because he just believed there was something in the house. I just started coming up and he was playing this amazing piano line, and then pretty much within the afternoon, we had it down, we'd written the beats and written the bass line, and then the vocal literally came within a matter of a day. I'd left Daniel after we'd come and did that work. And then we came back, and it's just like he believed the house was haunted, and this is how it manifested itself. I think 'Stuck' is a beautiful song." (Check out our full interview with Kelvin Swaby.)
