For Whatever's On Your Mind, the seventh album of Gomez's career, the British alternative rockers took an individual approach to recording the ten tracks. Firstly the demos were stored in a digital locker then each band member worked on the songs individually before being merged online. This was partly due to the five of them being scattered across two continents, from Los Angeles to Brooklyn to Brighton, England.
Another reason for this method is that the Gomez colleagues have concluded that they work better on their own. "It's just easier to dump everything into a big bucket in the sky," singer Ian Ball told Spin Magazine, referring to cloud-based computing. "We all have different musical interests, and working solo just takes taste out of the equation."
On this track, for example, drummer Olly Peacock wrote the initial version with a verse and "a bridgy chorus thing," before Ball added the track's central hook and melody. "There was no, 'But I really liked that verse!'" Ball told Spin Magazine. "No whining, no moaning. No one cared if things got changed."
