This track finds Father John Misty singing about communicating through technology rather than face-to-face, and how isolated the process made him feel. The song is the most synth-based one the former Fleet Foxes drummer has recorded to date. He told Grantland: "I wrote it on tour while trying to woo someone with text message and email and trying to make a connection that way and the frustration of that. So that song had to be synthetic and inorganic."
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
