The initial acetate of "Towel Full Of Sand" was written on the beach (and in the water) at Lake Windermere on the weekend of Duncan and Julie's wedding. The chord progression and melody originated from a 60's folk rock inspiration. It evolved to be further influenced by sounds by bands like REM and David Bowie in later stages of writing and recording. The lyrics are about pondering the impending responsibility that comes with reaching milestones in life and wax nostalgic about the simple, freewheeling times of youth coming to an end. The song resolves with the repeating chant: "Make a little time for yourself" as a mantra for keeping some of that youthful simplicity alive as life gets seemingly more complicated.
