Frontman Kevin Martin explained the song's meaning: "'Vexatious' is about the social networking-obsessed, unlimited bragging rights society we live in, where people come off as entitled yet so insecure," he said. "Whether it's a pop star feuding senselessly with another pop star, or people who can't help but to take 50 different selfies in under a minute missing everything that's happening around them, it's a sad commentary on life that we can't escape. Dating apps, bitching apps, secret sharing apps, apps apps apps — they all operate outside of any real or authentic human connection."
"It's disconnect everywhere and it's destroying us," Martin continued. "No one cares what anyone else thinks or feels. It's all 'me, me, me' and, if you ask me, it's f--king sad."
