Persson listened to a lot of '80s Pop during the production of the Animal Heart
album, which is reflected in the lead single with its retro synth beat. The results caught her and co-writers Eric D. Johnson and Nathan Larson off guard. In our interview with Nina
, she explained: "We started to write the song and it actually has just a little more action than what we thought... even some beats and some energy. But it was really fun because I got surprised by it. And we started at that end and then we just followed a trail of what we were heavily doing."
