It's Working was the first track demoed for the album and it immediately marks its patch a bold distance from Oracular Spectacular.
In place of the grumbling synthesizers and neon electronica you might have been expecting, the track builds its house on harpsichords, flutes and Zombies-esque guitars. What’s more, the hook - and there most definitely is one - takes a good 12 bars to reveal itself.
This is not 'psych rock inspired' like Oracula - this is full-blown, glorious bar-for-bar psych rock pastiche.
Perhaps predictably for a psych track, It’s Working is also about drugs. What’s more curious, however, is that it’s not about LSD. It’s about all the ecstasy the boys regret gobbling up in the early throes of their success.
