This song was released as the first single from Cage the Elephant’s third album, Melophobia. "I wrote the verse at the airport, inspired by the thought of things appearing different at first and then seeing them in a new light," Shultz continued. "We went on to San Paulo, and I remember being in my hotel and looking out one morning at this makeshift city on a hill. There were tarps and scrap metal, all of these little boxes with people inside of them. It made me think of an ant hill, but then I also thought, 'No, wait, these are people living their lives.' It made me want to look closer. That became the chorus."
Right from the beginning, the song starts off with a catchy groove that will grab the attention of any listener. The melodic flow of the lyrics blend well with the soulful, smooth bassline to create an almost hypnotic experience. A little bit spacey with a splash of psychedelic hard rock at the chorus, this song will be guaranteed to send chills down your spine.
