In Their Words: "This song was all about collaboration and contradiction from it's conception. I wrote it with my friend/bandmate/bass player, Ben Davis. And we were playing with the idea of musical phrases, each of a different length, all happening at the same time. Because the parts of the song are moving along and repeating in this way, the phrases of each part get displaced, creating a bit of tension. Eventually parts line back up, after a certain amount of cycles. The lyrics reflect that sort of displaced feeling. Watching someone but never knowing them ... And as you get closer, or when you think you know it all, things have shifted again. Then, collaborating with Sean and Sarah [of Phantogram] in the studio brought it to another level. With her high, breathy tone and his dark baritone it was a good match for a song with so many contrasting parts balancing to make up the whole." -- Singer Sarah K. Pedinotti
