  • Lyrics
  • This short-but-psychedelic less-than-two-minute track about '70s AM radio is totally different from the rest of the Currents album. Frontman Kevin Parker told Rolling Stone: "If I had an idea for a song or a soundscape, I would just go for it. I wouldn't try to make it fit into a preconceived notion of what Tame Impala was. If I had an idea for a song, I would just go for it and take it to its own extant, rather than try to box it in."

    "One of my mottos for Currents was 'give the song what it deserves," he added. "How would this song flourish? If the song could tell me what it wants, what can I give it? I tried not to dictate it with any sensible or logical decisions."
