Press Release :
The third single from the critically-acclaimed album "Slime & Reason" is perhaps the stand-out moment from a CD packed with stand-out moments. Produced by indie-funkster Metronomy, when Rodney Smith heard the basic beat he felt it was "the perfect opportunity for me to get back to my gospel church essence - get back to the old church van, happy clappy blind faith!" As such, it's perhaps the most uplifitng piece of music of a remarkable career, already described by the Guardian as "an anthem pitched somehwere near where OutKast might end up if they were produced by Sly & Robbie".

The final mix for the radio version of the tune was put together by Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Kano, Kate Nash etc plus remixes for New Order, U2, P-Diddy and The Streets), who kept the warmnth and wonkiness of the original while adding a punch and dynamism which guarantees it sticks in your head after a single listen.

Remixes (to follow shortly) come from Hot Chip and Ross Orton & Toddla T. The single will also be supported by an 18 date UK tour. A highlight for the autumn, this is proper pop music for proper people.
