Met Gala features DeMarco on "computer, waves plug-in, vocal hooks, and Autotune." Homeshake, a.k.a. Pete Sagar, and DIIV's Colin Caulfield are also listed as members of the band alongside Alec Meen, Sadie Holliday, Andrew Neville, Greg Napier, and Caila Thompson.

The band claims on YouTube that the songs were "recorded earlier today on the red carpet at the Met Gala." Presumably Pope Rihanna inspired them.
