Bridgers used a new recording technique on Punisher
that she learned from engineer Joseph Lorge. She explained to Billboard
the trick is to play various sounds and then "ride the faders as you're recording so it all shines in different moments."
Bridgers utilized that style on this track. "We made all these samples of bird sounds and backwards voice and Mellotron noises and rode the faders," she said, "and as the song went, we would turn them up and down to highlight different sections."
