  • Frontwoman Emily Haines told Drowned in Sound that this song was written, "at a farmhouse studio called Bear Creek, just outside Seattle." She added: "They have an amazing selection of vintage instruments there and I love the way the Wurlitzer makes this song sound like something from a 1970's detective show."
