The remote Texas farm where we record has only an old VHS player for entertainment, so we often end up watching the same few movies on repeat while we're writing music. One of those tapes is the '90's cinematic masterpiece Clueless, and one day, while listening to the argument between Dionne and Murray, Mark started playing a little call-and-response guitar over it. We thought it sounded cool, so we started messing around with it, then added a few melodic tones from an argument in Romancing the Stone. And the song sort of became this ode to bickering couples.
Our creation process is actually quite similar to improvised dialogue. Usually we start with a drum loop, then Laura Lee freestyles some bass over it, then Mark comes in and riffs on guitar over that. So there can be a natural conversational element to our music sometimes, because the songs usually are sort of a conversation between the three of us.
