HERE) and it features a spine tingling duet with Camera Obscura's Tracyanne Campbell. Every time I hear her vocals come in on the second verse it's pure gold.
Here's what lead singer Scott Hutchinson had to say about the track and working with Tracyanne. "This is going to sound like total bullshit, but please don’t exhale a
‘pfft’ and stop reading when I say, this song started off as a dream. I
honestly dreamt that i did a duet with a mystery female vocal on it and
the ‘I don’t know these buildings’ line was definitely in that dream.
So when it came to the writing, I had two parts in my head all along.
I have been a big Camera Obscura fan for a long time and when Tracyanne
said she’d be up for this, I was incredibly chuffed and her vocal is
just beautiful. It’s fairly obvious what it’s about, though I don’t
think it’s necessarily a love story. Sometimes you just need looking after, and everyone can feel like a
lost wee boy/girl from time to time, especially when you spend your life
Fuck This Place by Frightened Rabbit
"Fuck This Place"
My eye twitched like a memory of forgotten bars
One of those cities
One of those nights
Just this drink to hold my hand
One glass of anything
And I'm here just because
Everyone else has come just to be seen
Oh I don't know these buildings
I think I'm lost
In the perfumed armpit of time
Develop a deadline
These people are bricks
Six feet stones
Wrapped up in bones
Such disappointment on the paper is writ
So i stand still boring and bored
Fetching my eye again
Against the wall
At the end
At the close
Would you be good enough to take me home
'cause I don't know these buildings
I think I am lost
'cause I don't know these building
I think I am lost
would you be good enough to take me home?
