Travis dig into their rock roots with this grungy number where frontman Fran Healy is tempted by a relationship he knows is toxic. He told Apple Music how the track came together: "I needed a quiet place to go and write songs. So I thought that rather than spend a fortune in rent, I would just get a little boat. I moved it in Marina del Rey and would go there every day, mostly to hang out. This rockier side is something Travis has always done since the very beginning. You can go to Good Feeling
and hear that in most of that album. Even in The Man Who
, you can hear that on 'Blue Flashing Light
.' We've kind of got this edgy, dark thing that we do, because I think all of us come from that rock background. Led Zeppelin is a big influence on Travis. AC/DC is a big, big influence on Travis. R.E.M. and U2 are a massive influence as bands go. The direction on this song was for everyone in the band to play like you're screaming as loudly as you possibly can in pure anger. Like really, really f--king pissed. Let it all out."
