Quaint in its nature, this upbeat song is rooted in laid-back songwriting, dreamt up by songwriter Mary-Anne while visiting her rural family farm with no distractions. This is a happy track that is easy to listen to, yet hard to get out of your head. The Newcastle-based art rock band Cat Ryan have perfectly crafted a piece that is artistic in nature, with style and meaning emerging within the two-minute listen.

The speed and agility of a greyhound (the titular Rex Mundi) is used as a metaphor for strength and character, with themes of resistance and adopting alternative mindsets prevalent throughout, making for a smart tale of symbolism all wrapped neatly within a quick and quirky song replete with upbeat drums and a fast-paced bassline.
