McAllister’s piano-driven alternative pop/rock sounds similar to Keane and The 1975, but wrapped in subtly dynamic atmospheric layers.
The lyrics are joyfully dark and thought-provoking and open a window for listeners into a word of anxiety, depression and failed relationships. After struggling with their sound for several years, McAllister found a home in writing about the real life issues they were struggling with, which has created for them a niche opportunity to resonate with audience members on a very personal level. Ana Xavier from Sofar Sounds describes the music as “very intense, emotional, & personal.” If you listen carefully you can hear the struggle continuing to build until eventually finding an acceptance that leaves the listener with a glimmer of hope.
