The sound was influenced by bands including Mazzy Star, Cowboy Junkies and Nirvana along with country stars such as Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline.
For the video McLellan tried to evoke teenage angst combined with romantic melancholy.
'The song is very special to me – I wrote it a while ago but it's remained very important.
'It's about the breakdown of a relationship that still has a lot love within it and why it can be so hard to let some parts of you go along with that relationship,' Geldof told Vogue magazine.

That's our preconceptions being crushed, that is.'
