Songfacts®:

  • This song is driven by electronic bleeps as well as the Kooks' trademark acoustic guitars. Kooks vocalist Luke Pritchard told The Sun: "It came from a laptop drum loop and I strummed out some chords to it. We wanted to do a very anti-chorus. It's very un-Kooks. We usually push the chorus but this time we did the opposite."
