Album: Lost Property (2016)
  • This is a track from Turin Brakes' seventh album Lost Property. According to frontman Olly Knights, it took an age to get the song right and the quartet re-wrote the chorus about ten times. He told HMV.com: "Eventually we found a great structure that slowly reveals more and more as the tune progresses - not something that we've heard very often so we liked it in the end."
