Music style and live performances

The band mostly plays instrumental music; Willgoose has said that "singing is never going to work I'm not going to be happy with it, I'm not going to be comfortable playing it to other people" However, Willgoose does sing on one track of the Every Valley album, because the intended vocalist was not available They take samples from old public information films, archive footage and propaganda material
