Pitchfork named the song a “Best New Track,” hailing it as “a bright burst of kaleidoscopic color…a positively mean makeup of big, booming bass and squelchy synths that glisten and gleam underneath Lidell's high-octane whine,” and Stereogum praised Lidell’s “honeyed falsetto all over a wriggling post-dubstep drunken monster of a track.”

Known for bringing together disparate musical influences, Jamie Lidell cites Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton as inspirations for the new release saying “I referenced a lot of the analogue synth tones of the records I really love.” The album was recorded and mixed in Lidell’s new recording studio in his new home in Nashville, where the he recently moved after stints in Berlin and New York.
