Bassist Jared told The Music Fix how it originally sounded: "On the demo, it was really kind of distorted-sounding and it really had a Neutral Milk Hotel or a Olivia Tremor Control vibe. It sounds like… There's a song called 'Holland 1945
' by Neutral Milk Hotel that it really kind of… It's this kind of bar song that's like really fast. And I mean, when we recorded it, we kind of took it more of a Phil Spector way as opposed to the distorted, you know, Affan's band kind of vibe. But I think you can still feel some of that stuff in there."
