Yannis Philippakis told The NME: "It's just to do with having bad experiences every summer on Greek beaches, where I'd have a crush on somebody and it wouldn't go well. I've never been to Miami, but I wanted to set it there because I like the imagery of Scarface: bad suits, turquoise beaches and really white teeth." (Source Miami Songfacts).
I promised you on an ocean of
Mother of pearl, gold and indigo
Cut through the waves, I watched you swim away
I'll never love you more than today
