Matt recorded this song at sidetrack sound on a crisp spring morning in 2007. Tristan Waterkeyn (http://www.last.fm/music/Tristan+Waterkeyn) was in the studio helping produce the track and ended up performing all the percussion and the lead guitar parts. The song was written in a small flat in South London and recorded in Cape Town. The harmonies were an accident when Mat accidentally sang too high for the last part of the chorus and they sounded cool so he kept them. After they recorded the percussion Tristan's hands were red raw because of the rough hide used on the djembe drums. The percussive sound of the ocean was made by Tristan rubbing the drum surface and this took a layer of his skin with it!
