The music is kind of folk-punk in the traditon of bands like Defiance, Ohio, the early Against me! or Rosa. But in some ways it's much more darker and in that way very intense. The lyrics reflect the position of an individual in an world dominated by capitalism, alienation and repressive structures. It's also about friendship, disappointment, ... from a radical subjective position.
