Jade Bird sings on this fast-paced song about not being able to crack a smile and enjoy life. Instead, the singer finds herself stuck in a constant stream of overthinking everything around her.
Bird recalled to Girls Are Awesome
that she'd been playing on some rocks with her guitarist and bassist, then she walked down the hill into the barn where she wrote many of the songs for her debut album. "I feel like it was my subconscious talking," she explained. "Numb was a new feeling to me in 2018, I was a little overstimulated by all the good change – which is strange, but it happens!"
