The song was inspired by Neck Deep's time in Los Angeles recording The Peace And The Panic. Ben Barlow told HMV.com
"It was both really awesome and soul-crushing at the same time. As a place, it's great, it's got everything you could ever want, the weather is fantastic, there's so much culture. It's got its downsides too and they're pretty heavy downsides. You meet some strange people, everybody's there trying to make it and you wouldn't believe the amount of conversations that start with someone asking you how many Instagram followers you have. That shallowness got to me after a while, I can see how it swallows people up."
