“On No Ordinary Life, we were using Willy Wonka as a reference, literally, as a way to write melodies,” said Corby. “I know that sounds a bit crazy, but that film has some strong melodic ideology.”

“For some reason when you say Willy Wonka, it sets a mood – this magical, hyper-melodic, crooning, beautiful thing, a journey into the whimsical. We tried to make this song and a few others in that vein – as joyous as possible, which is definitely a change to what I used to do.”
