Album: Veckatimest (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-singer/guitarist Ed Droste commented to Drowned In Sound: "Can you hear the girl's giggle? It changed the song for me from 'scary' to 'everything else.'"

    The group's other co-singer/guitarist, Daniel Rossen, added: "Along with 'Fine For Now' this song was transformed and shaped in the end by playing it as loud as humanly possible while we were upstate. I think of it as a really demented love song. skirts the boundary of being totally insane and unbearable, which is somehow a selling point for me. When the song was finished and the choir was on with their laughter and snickering I was kind of scared that we had accidentally channeled Satan."
