Phoebe Bridgers is the latest guest on Song Exploder, a podcast hosted by Thao Nguyen. On the episode, Bridgers discusses her Stranger in the Alps track “Scott Street” alongside her drummer and co-writer Marshall Vore.
The pair walk through the history of the track by sharing early demos like a cassette recording and discussing the inspiration behind the production, instrumentation, and lyrics. “What I like about this song is it’s not really telling you why you’re sad,” Bridgers reveals. “It doesn’t say a lot about what you’re supposed to feel, and I’m just so glad people got it.”
