The instantly catchy single has has a jangly, Jesus and Mary Chain quality. Brother Andy tells Diffuser.fm, "Three winters ago, I had the song 'Heatwave' by Martha & the Vandellas burning up my ear drums. Two winters ago, I had 'Summer In The City' by the Lovin' Spoonful on hot rotation. Last winter, I moved to New York, and it wasn't cold at all, so I decide to write my own warmed-over jam."
