About the track, the band told thebeatjuice: "‘Thun’ is the name of a place in Switzerland we visited on tour last year. It is incredibly beautiful but the journey there was the most terrifying experience we had on the trip, driving through snow, having to turn around and drive back on ourselves, driving on narrow roads on cliff edges, and ultimately having to cancel the show. The song tries to capture how we felt on this journey and actually emerged from a pretty natural 9 minute jam we recorded on our phone that we decide to come back to when we were finishing the album. The theme of the song explores the nature of borders and freedom of movement; the randomness of who this applies to and to whom it doesn’t."
The song, featuring Nitzer Ebb's Douglas J McCarthy, is part of our current playlist and is taken from their upcoming collaborative album 'Detroit House Guests', which will be out on March 17 via Mute Records.
