Songfacts®:

  • American singer-songwriter Alexandra Sultry wrote this song with her pal Alex Turner. The Arctic Monkeys and Last Shadow Puppets musician also played drums, keyboards and guitar on the track, as well as engineering the tune.
  • The song featured on the True Detective soundtrack. T. Bone Burnett, who produces much of the music on the TV show, recalled: "They (Savior and Turner) came over one day with this song they've been working on, and it sounded exactly like this season of True Detective. So I said let's finish it up, and they brought over the multi-tracks, so we mixed it over here at Electromagnetic. And it's a killing tune."
