"Of course every time the song is now mentioned online, a blip of data triggers a filter that enters a file that rings a bell in a bunker deep under a mountain in Pennsylvania.

UPDATE 05/03/2018: "I Can't Stand It" is our new Single of the Week!
About the song, frontman Tom Ogden explains: "is inspired in part by Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It's a song about desperately wanting to forget about someone, but you can't because they're a part of you - and how that can be unbearable. Spotless Mind is about wanting to erase someone from your thoughts - to forget they even existed - and that feeds into the lyrics. It's a very literal song in many ways."
