First called "Married," the Boys wrote this song in Berlin (appropriately enough) in May 2015 as a wedding present for friends of theirs. It was, in fact, played at the wedding reception, serving as the newly married couple's first dance. It reportedly starts with Felix Mendelssohn's famous "Wedding March" from 1842 (often played at the conclusion of wedding services), but quickly deviates from it, becoming "techno-y."

Soon after the wedding they considered releasing it to the public, but only after revising its lyrics to make it "less specific," such as by deleting or replacing the names of the couple for whom it was written.

Little else is known about it at this time aside from it serving as the final track on Hotspot. I'll provide additional information as it becomes available.
