  • This is a track from The Illusion of Safety, the second album released by Anglo/Swede indie pop band The Hoosiers. Frontman Irwin Sparkes explained to Digital Spy why this is his favorite song on the record: "We recorded the album using our laptops while traveling round the world, and because we didn't have a lot of instruments we ended up improvising. This song in particular features the sound of me banging a drawer in a hotel room in Osaka. Somehow the noise made it on to the final album and it brings back a lot of good memories."
