  • Lyricist and bassist Isaiah Radkey told NME about the background to this bitter breakup song. "It's about a girl I know, who I used to see," he explained. "She at some point got this other boyfriend, and I was at this club, and she was f--king putting on a show, man. Basically just running around and making out with him and s--t - and making sure it was in front of me every time. She just knew how to f--king press every button."
