Your Body Is A Weapon

Album: Glitterbug (2013)
  • This tune was inspired by seeing One Direction's Harry Styles hounded by the paparazzi. Frontman Matthew Murphy told NME: "The song is loosely based on a 'pap' I witnessed outside a Brit awards after party, he was taking a picture of Conor Styles or whoever but looked thoroughly disinterested," he said. "It led me to feel slightly sorry for him."
  • The track was produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age and Taking Back Sunday) and was recorded within ten days at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles. "A few lyric changes were made to make it sound slightly less 'creepy'," said Murphy. "At the end of the session, Eric said 'I'm really happy with how this has turned out, there is a quality to the lower-mid range that I have been searching for for years, and I think I've got it!' - We have absolutely no idea what this means."
