Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Justin Young discussed this grunge-tinged number with NME: "A slow one, quite anthemic, with a lot of character in the vocals. It's quite personal; it'll be a good headphone song. It's vocally closer-sounding than we've ever been and it's essentially an argument - it's not self depreciating."
