    Summary

    Originally conceived by Dave Okumu, singer/guitarist with The Invisible, as a break-up song, "Wings" was transformed into something else by the death of his mother. In the first instance he had built the lyrics around the image of a bird trying to fly in a contained space - "but I was that contained space." Now, after his mother's sudden death, "I felt like I was observing myself all the time, as if I'd become my own CCTV, checking to see if I could function. The song changed, both in the way Dave approached it and how it sounded. The result is classic Invisible - a driving beat, warm bass and a vocal and melody of such subtlety that the result is at once achingly sad and strangely uplifting.

    Remix duties are dealt with by Floating Points. Never one to shy away from the epic, Sam Shepherd stetches out the original, adds gently swinging electronic drums and subtle ambient touches, all of which draw the focus back to the quality of the songwriting.

    Inspired by recent performances, the single is rounded out by a brand new version of "London Girl." The standout track from their Mercury-nominated debut, "London Girl" is here given a driving, dark, drum-heavy treatment that nods back to the original while giving a hint of the power and intensity of their current live shows.
