The first track to be dropped from Painted Ruins
, the six-minute song slowly builds to a climax. The tune is a collaborative effort between all four Grizzly Bear members. Co-vocalist Ed Droste told NPR
"This song all started with a beat that Chris Bear made and left on the Dropbox. [Chris Taylor] then put bass and chords over it, followed by a melody I came up with which resulted in the first half. Then in classic Grizzly Bear fashion, the second half came together when Dan [Rossen] and Chris Bear came to Chris Taylor's studio and they put together the rest, and the song was finally born!"
