Album: The Things We Do To Find People Who Like Us (2015)
  • songfacts ®
  • This was the song on The Things We Do To Find People Who Like Us that took the most work to get right. Beach Slang frontman James Alex Snyder explained to HMV.com: "It came together rather quickly when I wrote and demoed it at home, but we definitely banged into some weirdo walls once the full band was added."

    "But, yeah, sometimes having to push harder makes things better. I think that's kind of the deal here. I hope so, you know?"
