Written and arranged by lead singer Fyfe Dangerfield, and co-produced by Fyfe and New-York based Chris Shaw, whose previous credits include Bob Dylan, Super Furry Animals, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill, 'We're Here' is doggedly ambitious pop music, its soaring melody backed by – amongst other things - musical saw, strings, castanets and a tumbling rhumba beat.
"It's just a song about nature really," says Fyfe, sadly dispelling the internet myth that the song was a Broadway-style tune announcing the band's arrival on the UK music scene. "As humans, we think we're so important and powerful, but occasionally you have a moment when you actually feel, for a split second, just how insignificant we are in the overall scheme of things. And that can be such an exhilarating feeling."
Hailing from Birmingham, Canada, Brazil and the Scottish Highlands respectively, Guillemots are: Fyfe Dangerfield (keyboards, vocals), Aristazabal Hawkes (double bass), Mc LorD maGrAO (guitar) and Rican Caol (drums).
