This was the first song we wrote that we knew we were going to put on the album. We wrote this song in Los Angeles with Sasha Sloan, one of our favorite artists and songwriters.

This is their third album as a pair following the release of Oh Wonder and Ultralife , both of which have received positive reviews for their unique style.
