Standout tracks such as Burn The Liars, Foundation And Earth, Enemy Chorus and When The Wind Blows evoke elements of The Flaming Lips, Spiritualized, Brian Wilson and Sigur Ros, yet the Texan/Mancunian quartet remain resolutely individual.

The Earlies will release a 10″ single featuring two tracks from the album every two months until every track has also been issued as a single. The final single release – planned for July 2007 – will be packaged with a special box in which fans can collate all five 10″ singles.
