Bedouin Soundclash is a Canadian reggae-ska band that's shared a lot of history together since they formed in 2001 - a fact lead singer Jay Malinowski was contemplating when he wrote this track from their sixth studio album.
"That was about how Eon [Sinclair, bassist] and I have gone through close to 20 years of friendship now," he explained in a 2022 Songfacts interview
. "Each of us have gone through our ups and downs, and I think we always have the ability to know how the other person is doing - whether we say anything or not. So, the song was about that - 'birds of a feather stick by each other.'"
