- Murray Matravers told Clara Amfo about the song, “I wrote it in January of last year. And it was like locked down it was when I was miserable. I was freezing cold. So yeah, I suppose I was kind of miserable and sad.”
He continued, “I was actually having a great time making it to be honest. Gus and we made the instrumental together partially on Zoom. Because he was he lives in New York. He's a friend of mine. And we're just chatting. We're like trying to make a song and I had a great time. It was very funny.”
He added, “I tried the whole zoom session thing in lockdown, because that was like a thing that everyone was doing. And never worked not once, but just as amazed. It's nice and you can actually understand a lot more about how they're actually feeling to the body language and all that kind of stuff.”
