With lyrics partly inspired by J.G Ballard’s High Rise, Andrew speaks on the track:
“We always want to juxtapose ideas and themes — looking for a utopia in the darkness. We wanted to create a song that simultaneously revelled in destructiveness, whilst also critiquing it. The book really shocked me growing up, and continues to do so. This track is about pushing us to explore parts of ourselves and the people around us.”
The track was also inspired by the immersive visuals of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker, James saying:
“As writers, we’re constantly drawn to how visual imagery can explain a feeling in a more honest and visceral way than a description ever could. We want to create alternative landscapes and worlds to dive into and lose yourself for awhile.”
The band released their debut album 'Illuminations' in 2015.
