The band's musical styling of "the sounds and approaches of early country and rock n’ roll" was inspired by traditional American folk music and "hillbilly" music and is "reminiscent of 60s Nashville and Los Angeles as heard in artists like Roy Orbison, The Byrds, and Duane Eddy."

The band's third studio album, One Day, was released on Walkie Talkie Records on February 11, 2022.
