The album's lyrics are full of heartbreak and dashed dreams, so perhaps it was the Sderbergs' fragile state of mind that inspired them to venture tentatively out of their comfort zone. Certain songs suggest the pair could end up mimicking Ryan Adams's transition from Americana to boilerplate indie rock; the quiet, finger-picked To Live a Life certainly indicates, if the rest of their catalogue hadn't already, that they're intensely familiar with Adams. Fireworks is bold in conception, if not as much in execution. The acrobatic, scale-traversing vocal melody and classic soul underpinnings are undercut somewhat by thin, trebly electric guitars playing bland arpeggios, recalling a bloodless indie sound that's been dated since the mid-2000s. Conversely, the dramatic Rebel Heart is a similar but more effective take on an electric First Aid Kit sound, with a sparkling outro built on rapid, overlapping guitar trills.
