Taken from their much acclaimed fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, the single, available digitally, features the Tom Furse (The Horrors) Extrapolation mix, the Todd Terje Extended mix and a cover of the track by Frankie & The Heartstrings.
The song is inspired by Alex's time in Sunderland as a child, mentioning both the local Marsden Rock and South Shields Metro station.
"Ach, it's one of those optimistic pessimist's songs - as the North Sea sings "Come to me! Throw yourself to me!" all you can imagine is stepping across the horizon into a golden future while Marsden Rock collapses under the waves." -- Alex Kapranos
