Brothers Ruban and Kody Nielson have been playing, recording and collaborating on music for decades. From the influences of their jazz musician father and dancer mother, Ruban and Kody have gone on to play in New Zealands The Mint Chicks, and at its end in 2010, moved on to separate projects. Ruban formed Unknown Mortal Orchestra out of Portland, while Kody collaborated with various artists and musicians before his own solo project, SILICON, took shape.

At the end of 2015, as UMOs Multi-Love and SILICONs Personal Computer made the rounds, garnering critical acclaim, Ruban and Kody (who played keyboards and drums on UMOs M-L) took some time to rework tracks from each of their records. The theme of phones led to Kody working on UMOs Cant Keep Checking My Phone, changing it from a bouncy, sprite disco track to a sparser song filled with space, treated vocals and isolated drum breaks. Rubans rework of SILICONs Cellphone is turned moody and dark, with a skittering beat and additional vocals.
