Musically, this has a classic, vintage sound. First Aid Kit explained:
"The arrangement was inspired by 50s ballads, by The Everly Brothers and the Skeeter Davis song 'The End of the World
.' In the studio we played around with the old timey feel of the song, but also added these 80s juno keyboards and Twin Peaks style guitars to mix it up.
It actually was almost effortless, we knew what we wanted the arrangement to be like instantly. We really felt like we've created an interesting sonic world for the song. It's a little bit of a new sound for us, though not in a forced way. Safe to say, we're very proud of this one."
