"Biting Down" was written by Lorde (credited under Ella Yelich O'Connor) and Joel Little. It is described as a minimalistic track due to its simple production, and the repition of the phrase “It feels better biting down” throughout the song. About the song, Lorde commented:

"I wrote this song called “Biting Down” which was on my first EP, and no one really knows what that song’s about and I never really talk about it, but what I meant by “biting down” was small moments of intensity that help you understand something greater, whether that be intense pain or shock or even being super cold or something. Sometimes those things, whether or not they’re pleasant, can really tell you something about yourself or what you’re feeling. So that’s what that song was about for me."
