Band member Sam Margin said, "'Hoops' came as we were getting mixes on what we thought was the finished album. We kept writing just for something to keep us occupied, but when this one came up we felt it had to be on the album. It's about being in a relationship with someone who does damaging things to keep you close, when really their actions are pointless because you love them despite it all."
The music video was released on 11 August 2015.
"Hoops" entered the Australian charts at number 48 in August 2015 and peaked at number 9 in February 2016.
