She's American

Album: I Like It When You Sleep... (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is an ode to a girl across the Atlantic that's attracted to things 1975 vocalist Matt Healy can't understand. The English singer explained to Billboard magazine: "That song is playful. Not a snarling takedown but it's about being in an English rock band and the nuances of the courting process between American girls and British boys."
