The music industry trade magazine Billboard
called this "The closest thing to a perfect pop song to hit radio in recent memory," a sentiment appreciated by the band's guitarist, Jesse Valenzuela.
"This song reminds me why I work. I can count on hearing it in grocery stores, and I like playing it," he said in a Songfacts interview
. "It's really nice pop perfection, and just saccharin enough. As an artist, you have to start realizing what you do carries some value, even monetarily. And this song is a pretty big one for me to help me realize that this is what I'll do for a living from now on. And how lucky I am - because it's all I really love doing, and I get to do it all the time."
