Andrew Savage (vocalist/guitarist): “I told [producer] Rodaidh
McDonald that I wanted to find a sound that was equal parts Can,
Canned Heat and This Heat. He was really into that and probably
took some glee in having such a bizarre challenge.”

The accompanying video was directed by Shayne Ehman: “We were
inspired by the claymation master Art Clokey. I wanted the video to feel
like it was shot in the 1950’s and so I used very old lenses. One was a
brass projection lens from the 1860’s and another was radioactive.”

The Courts never rocked this conventionally and it works terrifically…
