With its swirling keyboards and dark lyrical concerns (in keeping with the fraught year NZ was embarking on), 'Jumping Out a Window' has become a classic (with a slot in APRA's Nature's Best Top 100). The third Pop Mechanix single, it shows the influence of the friends the band was starting to make — produced by Split Enz' Eddie Raynor and the debut release on Mike Chunn's boutique XSF label. The TVNZ made clip is firmly of its time and one of the broadcaster's more literal efforts (no mean feat in itself) — featuring windows and jumping.
