Speaking to NME after their appearance at Glastonbury this June, the band discussed ‘Metal Galaxy’. “For the next album, we’re facing a lot of new challenges,” Su-Metal said. “‘Elevator Girl’ represents me becoming an adult and the new metal that we have created. Our album is like a toybox with a different mixture of songs in there. ‘Elevator Girl’ is just one of those songs in the mix.”
