The rhythms have crunch and the melodies will stick in your head, but the song structure is anything but conventional. The sound suggests that point right before realizing you and a friend are having two separate conversations. At times it almost sounds as if they each have headphones on and are singing and playing along with whatever it is they are listening to, but somehow, it clicks.
