This single from the British hip-hop duo Rizzle Kicks' debut studio album, Stereo Typical, is more laid-back and melancholic than their previous releases. During an interview with Amaru Don TV, the Rizzle Kicks explained that the song originated with a beat titled "Slow Gear" sent to them by British songwriter/producer Ant Whiting. It was one of number of beats that he'd done for them and the Rizzle Kicks pair spent a week with Whiting recording this and four other songs for the album.
The song finds the Rizzle Kicks duo of Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule rapping about a journey. They told Amaru Don TV the concept came about as a result of the traveling for work they were doing at the time: "We were just like Piccadilly Circus and I just thought like, 'commuting.' I think what it was is that a lot of the tracks on the album are a lot more upbeat and we didn't want to lock into that more chilled vibe and the beat was wicked.
We came up with a few concepts and none was really catching and I was thinking, like, I kept thinking of the idea of doing this journey and then I thought of the idea of journeys . We wanted to write something for people who are in that same position of having to think about things in journeys."
The song's music video was directed and filmed by Toby Lockerbie, who's worked with Rizzle Kicks on all six of their previous clips apart from the one for "Mama Do The Hump."
