This spartan, plaintive track finds the Söderberg sisters recalling their youthful optimism when they started writing songs. They explained to The Sun: "In a lot of ways that song is like a New Year's resolution. It's about being naïve and how in some ways being naïve can be positive.

They explained to The Sun: "First of all it's simply a band name, but for us music is a form of therapy, a way to get through life. We listen to music when we need consolation and support. Music makes us feel less alone. We'd like our music to work as a plaster for the soul for our audience — a musical first aid kit."
