Feeder frontman Grant Nicholas wrote this song from the perspective of a female rocker. He based it on his own experiences of being in a band and his observations when hanging out with other groups. Nicholas explained to The Sun: "Writing it, I imagined this female rock star going through the insecurity of things going well, waiting for the bubble to burst."
The song also touches on what it's like being a rock musician in the social media age. Nicholas said: "Everyone is a critic these days and it can do your head in sometimes."
