Frontman Michael Angelakos' troubles in the year leading up to release of Gossamer included time spent in a mental hospital and struggles with addiction. The record acted as a therapy session for Angelakos and on this song, the haunted songwriter cries about his demons. "No one's gonna tell you when enough's enough. Enough's always too tough," he exclaims. "Yes, I drank all those drinks on my own. My life's become some blurry little quest."
The song's music video deals with the turmoils of love. Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert said the song's "crunchy" and "booty-smacking" intro inspired them. "The idea is this girl is dancing through her relationships," they explained. "We're trying to show how messy, confusing, funny, and sad and weird that is."
