“The song is very un-Pixies-like. It’s so gentle and dreamy, almost like a cloud in the sky passing over you. We did a fast version and we did a slow version, although I don’t remember which one came first.
“Musically, the drums are probably the hardest-sounding elements on the track. I used drum mallets on the floor tom and the snare when we cut it. The guitars are nice and floating – I really like the way they drift around the other instruments.
“It’s an easy song to play, but it’s very effective in the way it grabs people. It’s got a very odd, arresting spirit. There's nothing else that sounds quite like it.”
