“‘Take It Off’ is about being with someone that is closed off because of past relationships. All you want to do is scream ‘TRUST ME!’ but it’s not that easy to let their guard down when they’ve done the same thing before and it’s messed them up,” says TWO FRIENDS as told to Billboard Dance. “It’s always a musical challenge to write from the opposite gender’s perspective, but we think this song can relate to anyone that’s been in a relationship with someone closed off.”
Known for their viral remixes of Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ “Otherside,”Dua Lipa‘s “IDGAF,” Charlie Puth‘s “How Long,” The Killers’ “Mr Brightside” and KanyeWest‘s “Touch The Sky,” as well as their latest original offerings “Bandaid,”“Just A Kid,” and “With My Homies,” Los Angeles’ TWO FRIENDS have quickly grown from high school bedroom producers into one of the most promising producers/songwriters in dance music.
