Kid Kapichi told Clara Amfo about the song, “Literally, we both actually being 30, not long ago. And it's quite a scary moment in life. It's actually been good. I've enjoyed my 30 year so far a lot. But it's just talking about that it's a big feel of nostalgia for everyone who's going through that or about to go through that or is gone.”
They continued, “I think as I got older, I started to be more nostalgic and nostalgia has been more of a positive nice feeling. So it was like it definitely became it was kind of like a tongue in cheek, but then it definitely became a celebration of everything. There was, I guess, being like a 90s baby and all of that.”
