“There’s almost a ‘50s feel to it, or even something like Weezer might do along those lines," says Urmston. "It’s got that ‘head nod’ thing going for it. We recorded it for our EP, this one and Josaphine, but neither one was done so we saved them for the album.
“I was in Boston when I started messing around with the first line: ‘I really should be going now before it gets too late.’ I think it was because in high school – and this carried forward – I was always moving from place to place. I kind of had to, and then I became a musician, so that became my life. But it was always this protective measure not to put roots down anywhere, and it was out of fear. A fear of… failure?
“There’s a line in the song about trying to will yourself into being somebody else. I think a lot of us share that feeling in high school and beyond. That opportunity to change, or to stay in one place, we can choose to do that. So that’s where the chorus comes in – now or never, or switching it to never or now.
“It was a delight to play and record. Everything was easy about it. We just locked right in. I knew Brad coming in on the ‘never or now’ choruses would be great. The recording process mirrored the easy feel of the song.”
