Spektor has a broad vocal range and is known for the many unorthodox vocal techniques she uses on her songs. On this one, she purses her lips together to fake a trumpet part. "When I wrote it, in my mind it was just a placeholder for a real trumpet," she explained to the New York edition of The Metro. "First of all, it's really fun to do; it's a fun feeling, like even walking around the house being a trumpet. If you bring things from their implied state to a real state, sometimes it becomes better and sometimes, I don't know ... you try to feel what's right for the song."
