The song was written by Hannah Topp and published by Native Tongue Music Publishing.

Harding beat out some stiff competition this year, up against fellow artists Avantdale Bowling Club, Benee, Tiny Ruins and The Beths.

While this is the artist's first Silver Scroll win, she also featured in the Marlon Williams track Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore, which won last year.

The awards were held in a star-studded ceremony at Auckland's Spark Arena, attended by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Ruru Karaitiana, Pixie Williams and Jim Carter - co-creators of our first homegrown hit Blue Smoke - were this year's NZ Music Hall Of Fame inductees.
