A myriad of familiar music: Sixties psychedelia, a smidgen of Spacemen 3 and the Stone Roses in the early tracks, harmonics reminiscent of CSN(Y) and/or the Fleet Foxes, bits of Slowdive and the Telescopes and little snippets of sound throughout that you know you’ve heard before but you just can’t place.»

'2' demonstrates the band's love of fuzzy, reverb-laden rock 'n' roll and sunburned harmonies that stick in your head long after the needle has left the groove. it plays out like a musical odyssey complete with shimmering guitar anthems, blasts of buoyant pop, and a few surprises. '2' tightropes the line between sunny, harmonized beatles pop ('white composition') and the ever-present wall-of-sound distortion quilt so loved by shoegazers ('two ways out,' 'pale sun'), swooning and occasionally falling completely into one or the other. enamoured less of the inscrutable haze of my bloody valentine or slowdive, darker my love's hunger for noisy walls of sound strays closer to the swervedriver school of shoegaze. tracks like the pumping, organ-spattered, 'american woman'-ish 'blue day' and its distorted swirl start things nice and loud, paving the road for spacier jams like the pink floyd meets the doors echoes of 'add one to the other one.'
