This bouncy track features an appropriately summery ukulele melody and a horn line in the chorus. Lyrically, the song starts with Vance Joy singing of loneliness before becoming a sun-drenched singalong.
"It started off with a guitar riff and me being in hotel rooms and spending lots of time on the road and, I guess, feeling like, 'Ah jeez, I'm sick of just eating dinner alone every night,'" Joy explained to ABC Radio
. "So there was kind of a yearning to it."
When Joy went to record the song on the Californian west coast, the sunshine put him in a better mood. "I was working in a studio in Malibu, and I'd catch the Pacific Highway along the coast," he recalled. "I'd drive myself up to the studio every day, and I loved looking over the water. I guess my imagination was taking over and I was imagining meeting someone and making a road trip to see them."
