This single follows their 2017 sophomore EP The Bowling Alley Sound, a record that got the band named a “Fresh Find” for the first half of 2017 by Spotify. The outlet For Us Not Them said, “They do not sound like the jukebox or any bad disc jockeys you’ve heard at your neighborhood bowling alley, that’s for sure. The recently released EP is a mind-trip that will get your brain moving into places it hasn’t visited in a while, but these are happy places.”
The band's inspiration for this song came from a cross-country road trip with friends.
"We were driving down an Alabama highway in the middle of the night," describes guitarist Mike Basil. "Truckers were speeding past us, rain was pouring, and the thunder was unbearably loud. The woods along the highway were aflame in the distance. This tense, otherworldly experience is reflected in the song's dissonant chords, loud feel changes, and cymbal crashes. In contrast, the youthful voice of my nephew adds peace and resolve to the track, leading it out of a confusing place."
