The fast-paced guitar lines throughout the song beautifully create a high-energy atmosphere that enhances their smooth and passionate vocal delivery. how sweet does this sound? is their way of normalising the conversations around sex, hooking-up, kinks and everything else still considered taboo.

I wrote "how sweet does this sound?" as a joke, but as a teenager that only started exploring sex and 'hooking up' in college, there was always an overwhelming amount of pressure and anxiety for me, especially at the beginning of my journey living in the United States. The idea behind the song is to normalize the conversations around sex, kink, hooking-up, and all the dirty things that our society (for the most part) still considers taboo.
