"Come for Me" was inspired by the upfront rhymes of rapper Cardi B. "Her songs have such an element of humor, of sexuality, of strength," Cumming explained to The Independent
, "and kind of a blatancy that I feel gets lost in the world of indie rock, where everyone is always trying to be cool."
The Sunflower Bean singer added that after listening to Cardi B she wondered if the band could come up with something similar. Then they started working on "Come for Me," which "had this aggressive, fighting energy that also felt, in a weird way, connected to my sexuality."
