The track opens with sweeping, starry synths before jumping into the usual Four Tet groove. As the synths melt away, a clicking rhythm quietly builds until the bass-heavy beat fully comes in. He brings back the synths from the intro and adds a chopped up vocal melody.
The single’s b-side, “Ocoras,” was released earlier in Four Tet’s DJ Mix, Conference of the Birds. Even before it was recognized as a Four Tet song, its pulsing beat and meandering synthpads made it one of the highlights of the mix.
