  • Lyrics
  • Big TV is a concept album that follows the adventures of a young woman from a small town in a far off corner of Europe who leaves her boyfriend for the big city. This song finds the girl flying home. Bassist and lyricist Charles Cave told NME: "I see this song as her on an aeroplane, feeling extremely vulnerable and lost, as lost as she did in the city."
