I have to admit that before their 2008 Mercury Prize-winning album, the only thing that I knew of Elbow was their cover version of Independent Woman, which had been used to a soundtrack of an animation of some animated cats.
The album was a revelation, and this song (which was also a single) coincided with Enza and my wedding at the end of 2008. It summed up my mood well.
