Mount Kimbie's Kai Campos explained the background of the song to Crack Magazine
"The song sounds to me like a make believe band in my head. I wanted it to sound kind of fake in a way. The drums are from the crappy but brilliant Korg DDD-1 (also on Love What Survives
track "Marilyn"). When I heard the snare, it was like 'Yes! That is the s--t snare sound I have been looking for!' It's utilitarian and flat in a beautiful way that frees up all this space for other elements to flourish."
