The Japandroids wrote this almost entirely in the studio. Vocalist Brian King told HMV.com
: "It was a last ditch effort to re-write another song which we had decided to scrap at the last minute. I wrote all the lyrics upstairs (in the studio) while Dave (Prowse) was recording drums downstairs. We came up with the arrangement very spontaneously and tracked it immediately afterward. It is a very rare example of a Japandroids song coming together relatively quickly and easily."
