There is a real combination of sounds on the album, with the shortest track clocking in at over seven minutes long, whilst the incredibly funky and rocky Red Pill is over eight minutes long, yet doesn't feel it. It is a mix of melodic rock, funky guitar and bass, and the juxtaposition of Freya's beautiful vocals with a Red Hot Chilli Peppers-esque rap works incredibly well in context, before Parry throws in a Pink Floydian guitar solo that shows some of the diverse sounds that the group are mixing up in their melting pot.
There are also some contemporary cultural references to Game of Thrones in the fantastic Lots of Swords, the musical power in this band working really well together.
Superb tracks like the epic House by a Lake, which is stretched out and gives room for the songs to build and breathe, and the ever-so-relevant and intensely prescient Seven Mothers, with its ecology-themed lyrics and fantastic sound, lead into the atmospheric and ambient closing track, Now Boarding, which rounds off a highly intelligent, well-made, musically and vocally diverse debut.
