Martin Doherty recalled the writing of the song to FMQB
: "We kept trying and trying and trying to pull it back and pull it back and pull it back. We originally didn't intend for this to be sort of a festival banger song."
"It started out super, super low key and it just wanted to come alive. It became clear that the whole thing was building to that crescendo, the way the meter of the melody works, it's really frantic and quite anxious."
"That release is my favorite moment on the record. I think it's just Chvrches in a bottle, that 8 bars and that explosion. That's what we do."
