First song hits with a faded and backbeat song that calls out like Bjork revisited. Smooth Portishead moves and switch and flip into the next song. Songs that are beautiful, though very influenced. Ambient melodic spaceouts that call upon The Cocteau Twins as well as those bands already mentioned. Some keyboards add to the darkness, hints of electronica falling through the cracks, and the sadness hits like rain on a beautiful Sunday.
