Despite this record being their debut, Ghost Music has produced a veritable wealth of music over the past 20 years in various guises. The band revolves around the songwriting partnership of Matt Randall and Lee Hall, who had played together in the 90s with John Peel favourites Beatglider. More recently Randall has received critical acclaim as Plantman, with his three albums Closer to the Snow, Whispering Trees and To The Lighthouse receiving praise from The Guardian, Uncut and Mojo. When Randall and Hall reunited to collaborate on another album together, they brought in the talents of Roy Thirlwall on bass (Melodie Group) and Leighton Jennings on drums (Dark Globes) to complete the band.

The original idea would be that the songs would be "ghosts" and create "ghost music" to resurrect and dust off old songs that they had already started. Lee had found the beginnings of "Home Dog" on a dusty old 4-track and he had recorded "Strange Love" on his iPhone in 2014, whilst Matt had written "My Cloud" as far back as 1997 (the night he moved out of his parents' house). As the album began to take shape, the ghostly premise took a back seat, as they began to breathe new life into the songs they found the impetus to write new ones.
