“Oxytocin” is a fun one. That’s probably one of my favorites. We had all these songs and I was like, the only thing we’re missing is the song that’s purposefully gonna be insane live. And we did “Oxytocin.” Oh, my God, it was the most satisfying thing in the world. We would stand up and jump around and see what felt right. I was also just going through crazy feelings at the time too. You can understand those if you listen to the lyrics.”
