Speaking to Noisey, Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull shared that he and All Get Out frontman Nate Hussey, began working on the song as a sort of “writing experiment.”

Before long, the song turned into something more once the Front Bottom’s frontman Brian Sella started helping shape the song with an idea for the chorus.

During his interview with Noisey, Hull shared:

“I sent him back the melody and we started crafting out this character with as few words as possible. When I sent it to The Front Bottoms, Brian wrote the cool narrator perspective as our chorus. The Front Bottoms crew came down to Atlanta and we co-produced the track and gave it some proper clothing.”
