"It's one of the angriest songs I've written. Songs often come from the darkest, most extreme places. In that moment, I really wished the subject dead. It's fleeting, of course; but we've all felt it. We all know what it's like to be all-consumed by hate, I think. Hate is such a dirty word; I know a lot of people who talk like they're above it. Some people obviously think that wanted to really fuck somebody up makes you sound like, well, a bit unsavoury. I was trying to intellectualise that moment. Like, I'm not some thug cretin, but I still have moments of real hate and rage, and I think that's a really interesting thing to try and unbox. Like, without judgement; we all have those moments, no? Anyway, I know I have. I just tried to capture and bottle that feeling in 3 minutes of spooky pop. Who's it about? He doesn't deserve that level of notoriety... somehow who crossed my better half. Maybe I've written a song about it because I don't have the bottle to take him on IRL... maybe this is a better way."
