Album: World Of Joy (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Jordan Gatesmith described this to Words For Music as, "our fake blues song." He explained: "It's got a pop feel to it, but also has this really amazing blues breakdown in it."

    "That one was really funny," Gatesmith added. "We couldn't get the right take of it so what ended doing was just using a tom and a snare; we Jesus And Mary Chained it. There were so few microphones in the room and there was no separation, and at the beginning of the song we were screaming 'Yee-Haw' at each other. The take was really good, but then it proved impossible to take our screaming out of the beginning; so that's just there forever."
