This song is probably our favourite to play live – we usually end our set with it because we can really jam out on the outro. The track opens with a sax-section playing the main riff - we really wanted to feature a lot of Motown-style horns on the EP, in the vein of classic records from the 60’s and early 70’s by artists like Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield. The chorus was written in a moment of inspiration, the demo recorded as a voice memo into an iPhone while waiting for a bus around 2am on a late Saturday night. Lyrically, the track has a retrospective take on a relationship and the struggle to let go of it even if it’s unhealthy and painful. The song has a really strong sense of intimacy and a very direct, conversational tone throughout.
