Songfacts®:

  • In this electropop track, co-written with songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Rick Nowels and Devrik Karaoglu, Victoria Hesketh, aka Little Boots, desperately tries to forget her lover who is "stuck on repeat" in her mind.
  • Little Boots on similarities with her first single, "Stuck On Repeat" (Huffington Post interview, 2013): "It's an intentional move. This album is about me getting back to the start and the beginning. People say, 'I love that first track, that early stuff, then things went down a path.' This is me getting back to my roots. That song's darkness, the production, this record is about me getting back to that. It's almost a sequel to 'Stuck on Repeat.' It's about pop songs: why we want to repeat them, why we have this obsession with repetition. I did want to do a cheeky nod to that first song. It's about me getting back to that, to when things first clicked, to regain and repossess that bounce." >>
