The duo explained each song below.
“was it not”
“It’s about considering a relationship from long ago – remembering how we were so in love, and that person was everything to us, only now when we think about that one time…was that moment them? Or are we mixing it up with another fragment from our past? It’s about feeling a yearning for what once was, but only for a second, because you remember why you left it in the past, and who you are now. It lives in a strange emotional in-between and we love it. A lot.”
- “Take A Number”
“There’s so much noise right now, there’s more music than ever,” Marian Hill explains. “We really tried to zero in on making something crazy and in your face and undeniable that only we could make.”
“like u do”
“You have to write bad songs to write good songs. That’s a crass way of putting it, but not only is songwriting a numbers game (the more songs you write, the more will have a chance of being better), it’s a reactive process. “like u do” was written directly in reaction to our getting tired of writing darker, slower songs for several weeks – it felt like a massive breath of fresh air when we finally found it. The beat came together in minutes and soon we went from writer’s block doldrums to bouncing around the studio – when Sam sang the hook for the first time it felt so easy and natural.”
