Young Reverie is a smooth and solid indie tune with elements of the Arcade Fire and Snow Patrol mixed in. The song glides along nicely with some catchy tunes and occasional outbursts of energy. The Score is a catchy pop tune sounding like a slightly more rock version of Duran Duran. There’s a certain laid back vibe to it combined with some bright and charming tunes. This results in a slick and likable song. Sometimes is a racy pop tune with some shoegazy undertones sounding similar to the Teenage Fan Club. The EP closes with the lively and melodic Two Hands.
