The title-track is a funky blend of indie rock, with ethereal keyboards and jangly guitar lines that blur the lines between dream pop nostalgia and psych-rock, with elements of punk present during its bridge.
“Fingerless GlOves” has more of a dance feel to it, with its disco-inspired beat and synth flairs during its introduction and verses. During the chorus the song takes a more synth pop feel, however the end rips through a metal-infused breakdown.
“Kcrraannnggaanngg!!” opens up with a Middle Eastern-inspired guitar line, that fits in well with its subdued basslines and steady drum beat. The song also juxtaposes loud/soft dynamics, with a grunge-drenched interlude in between the band’s spacious instrumentals.
“Karlheinz ChOp Up Children,” is a nod to electronic pioneer Karlheinz Stockhausen, which is referenced through its eerie tape loops and eerie electronic sounds present on the song. The instrumental goes completely haywire at the end, jumping from different styles from line to line.
