Pada sebuah pernyataan Barnett menyebutkan, “In 2014, I scored a support slot opening for Kurt at the Abbotsford Convent. We met briefly after the show but I was a bit nervous and didn’t wanna bother him, just grateful for the gig. – Years later we started bumping into each other on the festival circuit all around the wide world and we became friends. He hit me up when he was coming to Melbourne next and said he thought we could work together.” [NME]

Sementara Vile sendiri sempat menyatakan jika ‘Depreston’ merupakan lagu favoritnya dari Courtney Barnett.

“I love all her music, but the song that really hit me was ‘Depreston’ – I know it’s popular, but her voice is so good in that song and it’s so pretty and sincere… I’m a sucker for that kinda song, instant classic.”  [NME]
