  • Say Lou Lou told Spin the story behind this cinematic narrative: "A savior, a woman saving a man is the theme," they explained. "Definitely a personal experience of saving someone who keeps f--king up."

    "That's something a lot of women, a lot of people can relate to that," Say Lou Lou added. "Just kind of turning the tables and feeling empowered, in some way, but also I think we wanted it to feel like it was, not a driving song, but sort of a driving song. Putting on an old tape in your car and driving through the night."
