"'Ploy' is kind of about the insecurity or paranoia that comes with a blooming relationship", says Shalam. "I suppose initially I thought of the riff as my attempt at trying to write something Beach Boys-esque by having simple chords but a bass line that moved back and forth. It was a new style of song-writing for me as up until then I'd mostly used guitar, but I wanted to begin using piano as the anchor for the songs I was working on at the time."
