Eleanor Friedberger wrote this snappy, hooky number about a club in Athens called Rebound. She told Uncut:
"This past year, I went to Athens, Greece. I had a solo show planned, but a friend of mine introduced me to some musicians. Instead of writing and preparing for the show and practicing with a Greek band, I got to know the city really well. I went to a club called Rebound; it's kind of a goth club.
Everyone did this dance called the Chicken Dance where people stand in a line moping back and forth. You don't dance with a partner. It's not joyful at all. So I wrote a song about that."
The Rebound album takes its name from the Goth club. Friedberger explained to Consequence of Sound that it was there that she had a "revelation in terms of finding the sound and energy for my fourth album."
