The track is carried by delicate lines of bare ukulele. Its drizzling strokes make up the instrumentation of the track, with the occasional texture play with banjo melodies. The use of stripped and minimalistic soundscape further creates an atmosphere of informality that aligns with the thematic exposition. Cassidy’s matte vocals dip into the pockets of the melodies, lending a softness and warmth. It is simplistic and unpretentious, reminiscent of vintage sonic stylings.
