This was released as the second single from the Brooklyn-based indie rock band Grizzly Bear's fourth studio album, Shields. Regarding the record's lyrical content, singer Ed Droste noted to UK newspaper The Sun: "I hate over-explaining lyrics because I love listeners to find their own meanings in them. But our album as a whole is about the overarching sensibility where you really want to be autonomous and alone all the time, but at the same time you're afraid of being alone and feel you need to find a partner, couple up and get domestic. It's about navigating that tricky terrain and finding the balance where you're happy in between."
The surreal Emily Kai Bock directed video follows a young figure skater as she tries to perfect her technique during a difficult practice, until she ends up crashing through the ice. This leads her on a journey through a carnival and into a forest, where a backwoods quartet comes to her aid.
