“The song was written about the mildly sadistic way that the press sometimes seems to be walking around waiting for musicians and artists to fail,” explains vocalist Haley Shea.
“I wrote the lyrics mostly as Lorde had her big breakthrough. It just seemed like she – as an amazingly talented artist – was having to work way too hard, due to her age and gender, to prove she had an important voice. There was kind of this feeling like everyone was waiting for her to screw up and pull a Justin Bieber or something: ‘What, a young intelligent female artist? Impossible! Who is behind this?’”

25 Shipping Forecast, Liverpool
