“This song is about initial attraction and the feeling that comes with meeting someone that really excites you. I wrote this song with Sam Tinnesz, Andreas Moss, and Joe Williams and it was such a fun process. There’s something so special about being able to narrate the beginning stages of a relationship especially because it’s something we’ve all experienced at one time or another. The song came together so effortlessly and I’m really proud of the way it turned out!” – estef
