Speaking about There You Go, Powder House say, "The song was written during an unfortunate event. A reflection of life, running wild. Death. The drug taking of our generation. Forgiveness and violence on the streets.
"The picking style of John Martyn is used in this track, a sort of pick and go that he used. The simplicity of an Airborne Toxic Event riff with a vocal style we just thought suited the song ourselves really. Our drummer Luke said it reminds him of Snow Patrol."
