It's mostly just two girls and their guitars. Later stuff has other instruments and techniques added in. Their music is very folk-sy but again, as they grew, they picked up more of a rocker edge. Their lyrics are actual poetry. Their melodies have literally brought tears to my eyes before, so gorgeous.
I wanted to post about some of their lyrics but I couldn't decide how to do it. A top ten list wouldn't work, I could never choose only ten! I decided to post each album, but that sort of sucks too because their first two albums are not my favorite. So, let's start getting that out of the way so we can get onto the good stuff, yeah?
Strange Fire is their first album and it's basically their demo tape. It's very elementary but it's very interesting to compare it to their later stuff and see how much their music has grown. Originally their manager felt their style was too "immature" and that they'd never get a record deal....hearing Strange Fire changed his mind.
