When the sec­ond drop hap­pens, the har­monic struc­ture of the track steps up a gear, Ian ex­plains: “The chords just de­velop slightly, with an ex­tra pass­ing chord. These pi­ano chords take over from the string chords in the in­tro. And we’ve got the Moog here, fol­low­ing the chords’ root notes…”

Tom adds: “With not a lot of low end in it, be­cause you don’t re­ally want to be stack­ing too many fre­quen­cies on top of each other, af­ter all.

“The sub pat­tern’s a lit­tle more on the syn­co­pated side, in or­der to give it the groove with the drums. And that punch sub is help­ing it cut through a bit more.”
