Kapronos explained to self-titled magazine
how this song came together: "This was a chord progression that came from something [guitarist] Nick [McCarthy] had written, and he didn't have any words for it. I remember singing 'Scooby Doo' over it for a long time. It was originally an acoustic song, but it just sounded too—I don't know—something like Oasis. We experimented with having lots of layers and then pulling them all back and putting the odd one in with a lot of space around the bass for a natural delivery."
