'This album is widely imaginative and emotionally charged. If Willy Wonka wrote a tragic opera, it would be 'Licking Wounds'.' -Danny Reyes, Lead Singer

Musically, their sound is noted for its contrast of dreamy soundscapes and post-rock passages. The vocal melodic phrases are long and wide-ranging, placing a strong emphasis on evocative lyrics with a broad emotional span. The use of bowed double bass with effects adds a haunting and sometimes psychedelic quality. Two guitarists juxtapose acoustic and electric guitars and also employ creative sound effects, both on guitar and synthesizer. On the drums, mallets on the toms are often used to create a rumbling feel, and inspiration for grooves range from hip hop to classic rock. Although the group approaches their music from a meticulous and artistic viewpoint, they aim to produce accessible and thoughtful orchestral pop-rock songs.
