Guitarist Derek Miller told NME that Alexis Krauss belts out the vocals in a way that she's never done before. He explained: "We had tracked this vocals, that we did this between Reign tours, and we had vocal takes that were not dissimilar to the stuff that you'd hear on Reign Of Terror and they were sung very quietly and hard panned, like something you were hear on Reign. It sounds like something you would've done. And then you went in and you basically belted it, and it became one of my favorites. I remember you did and it was like two takes and it was done. This is an example, in terms of expression and being emotive, the vocal range expanded. The verse - she wasn't singing this way before."
Derek Miller's guitar part on this song is a huge nod to Johnny Marr. The ex Smiths axeman is his favorite guitar player. "That man's genius is unparalleled," he told NME. "That chorus on that is definitely indebted to him, it's jangly, lots of chorus."
