  • Little Boots wrote this with Jim Eliot of the British electropop group Kish Mauve.
  • She explained the song's meaning in a 2013 Huffington Post interview: "That song is about having an argument. Something starts as a very small, offhand comment; the other person retaliates; it's completely out of control; you're caught in this thing. It's something that happens when you get two stubborn or strong-minded people in a relationship. I'm attracted to other strong-minded people." >>
