The song was compared to the works and the style of the TV on the Radio. The song progresses from Dave Sitek's funk-inspired grooves. It is noted for its "hypnotic tribal rhythm", which was attributed to Master Musicians of Joujouka's involvement, and Dave Navarro's "fuzzed-out" guitar work on the verse riff, which gave an impression of "pulsating."
The music video for the song features animated figures of Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, and Stephen Perkins performing alongside and painted on top of a naked model. A Todd Newman-directed video, which depicts the band members and Dave Sitek during the recording session of the song was also released on April 8, 2011.
