Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Reenie Hollis recalled to Drowned In Sound: "A lot of people say 'Giddy Stratospheres' is our best song. I'd say it's one of the strongest. It's a song we've played live at every gig since we wrote it, and that's probably the only song we've ever done that with. It might not have been a 'hit', but it's one that's essential to play from our point of view - our set was always built around it. It'd just feel extremely weird not to play it. It's been played at quite a few indie nights around the country, and I'm not entirely sure why - I mean, have you tried dancing to it? The rhythm's all over the place!"
