“I wrote it early last winter from a small apartment in rainy London,” she explains. “Winter months always affect me, I hate when the light comes and goes so quickly. Without being able to travel abroad, I wrote this song directed at California. ‘Cali wait for me / I promise that someday I will be there’. It’s only the second track of mine without guitars, a side of my music I haven’t shown so much.”
On the video she adds, “The video was shot on VHS in a friend’s room. Most of it is me lounging, I wanted to capture a general restlessness. Props like playboy magazines and McDonalds meals made it quintessentially American. The light fades from day to night on a loop, until it becomes just night for the second half of the song.”
