Songfacts®:

  • "Oom Sha La La" has a very different vibe from the other I Need To Start A Garden tracks. Haley Heynderickx told Uncut the story of the song.

    "This tune was written in a song challenge and scrapped away in the books for many months. Over a year later I brought it back to the band as sort of a joke and had no idea it could take the form it did. Releasing this song has allowed me to feel simultaneously embarrassed and proud of it."
  • The I Need To Start A Garden album title is taken from a lyric in this song.
