Songfacts®:

  • The Wombats drummer Dan Haggis spoke to the BBC Newsbeat program about this song. He explained: "It's about coming off tour and not really assimilating with normal life easily which is something we all suffer from It's like coming up from under the sea and feeling disorientated."
  • The video sees the band become 3D game characters in a platform-style video game. Frontman Matthew Murphy revealed to the NME January 24, 2009 that the promo was initially set to much more X-rated. He moaned: "They toned it down, they said we couldn't really have characters having promiscuous sex in the corner." Murphy added that he was wasn't happy about the video's depiction of his drinking skills either: "If you look carefully you can see I drink about two halves of beer and I'm absolutely slammed. Maybe we should think of it as golden absinthe instead."
