  • This song finds Warpaint honoring the sense of menace that lingers in their music. Guitarist Emily Kokal freestyled the cut over Jenny Lee Lindberg's bass and Stella Mozgawa's drums as each band member took it in turns to sing a verse. "It's like rowdy children getting their jujus out and dancing," Lindberg told NME.
  • Warpaint got some visitors during the recording of the song: "That was just something that we were playing for probably 45 minutes and then the cops showed up," Mozgawa told MTV News. "They said that there was an elderly woman down the street that was feeling nauseous because of the music and they'd like us to stop."
  • The song has a restless spirit which is why Lindberg fought to keep it on the record. "This album is a lot sexier and groovy, but the songs away more mature than they've ever been, and I wanted something loose on there," she told NME.
