A.C. Newman mentioned of “The Surprise Knock” in a press release:
“The Surprise Knock” had a special really feel after we first recorded
it—and I wouldn’t thoughts releasing that model sooner or later. But as I
was listening to it, I believed, “Why don’t we play this tune like New
Pornographers 2005?” Then we simply replayed it with that really feel. I
thought sufficient time has handed that I really feel like I can play songs that
kind of sound like a basic a sound and never really feel like I’m repeating
myself, as a result of it’s been so lengthy. That was positively part of it:
simply eager to… I hate to say “get back,” however simply get extra
barely raucous and sounding extra like a band.
