Sha said of the album, “It was really the only thing this album could be called. It's bold and unapologetic, and that's what the Pale Waves community is about. We don't need to fit a perfect mould, we don't need to apologise for being ourselves, and we won't change for anyone. That acceptance is what connects us.”

She told Clara Amfo about a working with Zakk Cervini, “I mean, I love LA. I do a lot of writing over there. We grow and recorded the album with Zakk Cervini. And he's just like the perfect match for us. I couldn't have asked for a better producer. He loves like alternative music, like rock music, and that's where we want to go with the next record and he's the most positive human ever. Like, it's just incredible. He's always on cloud nine and it was just so easy to write with them and record with them and yeah, it was amazing.”
