  • Nina explained the song's meaning to The Sun: "That song is about being in a relationship that people around you disapprove of," she said. "It's about not listening to anyone's opinions because you loved being with that person. The subject was quite old-fashioned and reminded me of the 1950s romance, so I wanted to give it a retro feel."
  • Nina wrote the song with former Kaiser Chiefs drummer Nick Hodgson. He quit the band at the end of 2012 to work full-time as a producer and songwriter at his 'Chewdio' studios in East London.
