"introspective rock noir"; unconventional; fresh; witty, gritty, smart lyrics; tasty unexpected instrumental passages; eclectic; unique blend of haunting & beautiful fringe pop that hints at Americana, jazz & altrock. As damaged & intense as the cover art

Album Notes
One fan described the hard-to-pigeon-hole sound as: "introspective rock noir". Others have said variously: a new voice; unconventional; fresh, intense, outside of the box sound; witty, gritty, smart and at times self-deprecating, yet charming lyrics; peppered with tasty and unexpected instrumental passages that keep the listener's head cocked for the next one; as eclectic as it gets; a unique blend of haunting and beautiful fringe pop that hints at Americana, jazz and altrock all at once; easily as damaged and intense as the cover art. Simply: The Best Band You've Never Heard ....
