The song was recorded at Los Angeles' legendary Vox Studios and was co-produced by Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend. Danielle Haim recalled to Pitchfork
"The drums were literally recorded with one mic on the opposite side of the room. Rostam is so awesome in the studio. He's like our cheerleader. He was just playing some chords, and this song came out. He was like, 'At the chorus, sing the highest note you can sing! Keep going! Higher!'"
"We don't really write with a lot of other people, but we love writing with him," she added. "When it's just the three of us, we can be like, 'This sucks! I don't know about that line!' But with Rostam, he records everything. I'll sing the weirdest little [half-hearted] 'nah nah nah nah,' and he'll be like, 'That's amazing! That's the chorus.' And we're like, 'Really?'"
