," this track explores a gay relationship and feelings of shame from a first-person perspective. Both songs took shape on the way home from a party where a confrontation arose around two friends that frontman James Allan hadn't previously known were gay.

And when I saw that, it kind of blew my mind, because it was one of the most tender and romantic and fragile things I've ever seen in my life."
