There is a soft essence of Jack Kerouac in many of the songs, bur perhaps not as verbose. The lyrics and the music fit each other very well. At times the orange beauties fall into a slow, hypnotic, and mystic beat akin to Mazzy Star.
Like Mazzy Star, the band assimilates a gloomy mood into their music which is a reflection of the everyday desires and feelings of alienation and longing. The bands melodic folk insight helps them transcend the garage sound that has become so very common to this long lost genre, which the orange beauties so lushly replenish. Some of the songs were reminiscent of Kurt Cobains melancholy version of David Bowies The Man Who Sold The World. This disk is peacefully sombering, and has a vintage folk essence that sets it apart from modern mainstream rock. Though disk is short, I was thoroughly impressed with the production and artistic control with which the songs are performed.
