Alec Ounsworth is the frontman of American indie rock group, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. This is a track from his debut solo album, Mo Beauty.
Ounsworth wrote this autobiographical song several years prior to the recording of Mo Beauty. He told Rolling Stone : "That was an older song and that probably has something to do with a darker time in my life, a particular incident. I don't wanna go too into it, but it's kinda a small window into that. I don't recall when I wrote it, but I wasn't taking what had happened all too seriously."
