: "I think this song is really special because it is just a different perspective on a party song than you typically hear. It's usually like a 'we're going to go pop some bottles' perspective. This is more introspective, like 'I actually don't really want to be here, This really isn't that fun for me right now. This is just stupid. The fact that we are just here just getting wasted for no reason, why are we here?'
But it's not totally negative. I think that juxtaposition is the magic. It is teetering on the edge of light and dark – it's sonically bright but then lyrically it feels a little bit darker, and that makes it really special and creates an interesting dialogue."
