Glass Smash

Album: Which Bitch? (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Kieren Webster explained to The View Are On Fire: "It's just about what goes on at the end of the night. It's about me and my bird arguing really. A pretty extreme argument. But then we make up in the end."
  • This song starts off with a choir. Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) explained: "That bit from the start came from Owen [Morris, producer]. I'd only done the choir on the middle eight and then Owen put it on at the start. I went away to get a beer out of the fridge and I came back and he's like, 'What d'you think of this?' I was like, (laughs) 'Woah'. It was really haunting."
