Somehow, for a song that’s pretty much about a) fancying someone with wonky teeth and b) a little mantra to remind you that you’re perfect exactly as you are, this turned out sounding like gothy surf-rock, or as Healey said when we were working on it, ‘like every My Chemical Romance song being played at the same time’. We decided to double down: synths, gang vocals and pick scrapes, oh my! This is one of the most uplifting, happy songs we’ve written, and by bookending the album with big joyful explosions, maybe it’ll do something to soothe the collective woe we’ve all been living through. We’re also incredibly excited that the amazing Jono Ganz is bringing our gothy-surf-rock vision to life with the animated music video. Half this band are total Halloween obsessives and we loved the vintage spooky ‘beistle’ style that Jono created—all deep oranges and browns and blacks. We also loved seeing ourselves represented by a retro skeleton band, complete with grill mic and upright bass! This video suits the song so well—we couldn’t stop smiling when Jono sent it over, and we hope it brings you a ton of joy.
