“This song was a no brainer when considering songs for our EP. It taps into the intimate sides of our lives that we wanted to share with our fans,” says SixForty1.
The song is written from a guy’s point-of-view about his girlfriend, asking her to keep things simple by telling her that she can “forget those heels” as he thinks she looks good without all of the added glitz and glam.
