  • Lyrics
  • This is the lead single by New Zealand singer/songwriter Pip Brown, who records under the name of Ladyhawke, from her second studio album Anxiety. The track was written and produced by the singer alongside long-time collaborator Pascal Gabriel.
  • Brown explained to NME that the album's title is built around the feeling of 'Anxiety' and nervousness. She said: "It's called 'Anxiety' because every song has that sort of feeling, my mindset throughout the recording was a mixture of being so tired and just being worried the whole time. I'm a walking ball of anxiety. It completely sums up the album."
  • Brown wanted the video to have "an early '90s psychedelic vibe" but it ended up being based on '70s film Eyes of Laura Mars. She told Digital Spy: "I gave the director a brief on what I wanted and she basically did the complete opposite." The singer went onto admit that she loved the way it turned out.
