Artist: The Scanners
Album: Scanners EP
"We wrote the song 'Mexico' after we toured a few times driving across the U.S. desert. It's pretty mind blowing if you're from the U.K. because there is nothing like it there at all. The heat, the space, it's like another planet. All the time we would be driving near the border and stopping in places like El Paso, but we never made it into Mexico itself," The Scanners Matthew Mole tells Rolling Stone. "So I suppose it always had some strange romantic appeal to us. I suppose that's why we were so conscious of being 'so far from home'."
