Endless Blue

Songfacts®:

  • This song begins with a dreamy six piece brass section led by trumpeter Derek Watkins, who played on the Beatles' "A Day In The Life" and "Strawberry Fields Forever." The song then plunges into a cascade of thrashy guitar riffing. Said guitarist Joshua Hayward to The Quietus: "Having our own studio, I discovered the fact that you can play more than ten guitar tracks on a record. And I was just experimenting."
  • Bass player Rhys Webb told NME: "We wrote this on a Monday, which might explain its lazy introduction - I think the song got faster as the day went on and we shook the weekend blues away."
