The record combines pulsing bass, sparse piano, and hypnotic, pounding drums with hooky guitars inadvertently dressed in the neon colours of the 1980s. This unassuming band creates music that is both cathartic and epic. Still they maintain a childlike sense of wonder as the search for new ears takes them further and further from home.
