This track features three verses by West Coast rapper Vince Staples. The collaboration came about because Flume was a big fan of Staples' major label debut Summertime '06.
Flume came up with the song's beat in the back of a van while traveling to Vegas in 2015. He recalled when premiering the song on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show that it wasn't originally intended to have rap on it. "Vince and I got to meet in person for the first time in LA in September, and that's when I showed him the beat," he explained, "a few weeks later he sent back new verses for it. I was really happy, I love the tone of his voice."
Perth, Australia-based producer and singer Kucka croons the hook. Her hazy vocals were added once Vince Staples' rhymes had been inserted into the song.
