Album: Night People (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • You Me At Six singer Josh Franceschi told Kerrang the story behind this song:

    "We were in Australia playing a festival called Groovin the Moo, and there was a band who always played just after us, or just before us called Sticky Fingers who have one song that had a slow tempo but was really euphoric, and it inspired me to write something with the same mood."
  • The song's music video shows You Me At Six performing the song at London Shepherd's Bush Empire venue. "Originally, it wasn't meant to be a music video, so to speak," said Josh Franceschi. "It was meant to be us having footage and the content for that song. I think as the label and America settled with it more, they thought it would work as a cool first video for the track. I think it's a beautiful venue, Shepherd's Bush, and I think you can really see that in the music video."
