Vocalist and lyricist Jill McKeever describes the song as a reflection on deception in relationships.

This title hints at a multifaceted musical journey that fans can look forward to exploring.
Meet the Creative Minds Behind Redder Moon:
Redder Moon is a self-produced and self-recorded project, with files passing between the band members until the music takes shape. This unique collaborative process has been the band’s modus operandi since its inception during the 2020 pandemic. The band’s lineup includes:
- Jill McKeever: Vocals, Lyrics, Violin
- Brody Lowe: Synths, Drum Machine, Production
- Jeremiah James Gonzales: Guitar, Bass, Synths, Drums, Production
The songs are meticulously crafted in their respective home studios before being combined and refined into fully realized compositions at The temple room studio which is (Jeremiah James) main producing studio where it all came together. The final touch comes from their trusted mixing engineer, Ross Brown (known for his work with Shy Boys, Snacky, and Full Bloods), and mastering by Duane Trower at Weights & Measures Studio.
