Their dream pop-influenced compositions layer delicate vocals on top of silky, undulating waves of synths and moody, affecting lyrics. While the mood they create on certain songs might feel right in a tiny, underground club, the fact that they’re playing at the Birchmere means more listeners will be able to see the group dynamics up close.
