“Brimming with classical rock textures blended with alt-rock elements that make for a melodic, hooky sonic character. Clearly the style revolves around these spectrums. It's powerful, energetic, and rhythmic by design. Musically it recalls the likes of Collective Soul, Incubus, Boston, Chris Cornell, Alice In Chains, The Fire Theft, etc.” - UNXIGNED.COM
