Of Montreal's members are interested in finding a different way to look at a pop song. In this case, the group takes a meek approach, sneaking up on the melody surreptitiously and capturing it unawares. The instrumentation is equally low-key, using just guitar/bass/drums and mild, double-tracked vocals. Of Montreal is clearly influenced by `60s songsmiths such as the Byrds or even the Mamas And The Papas; the group's songs are all sweet pop ditties, as suitable for campfire-singing as stage performance. The songs also conjure up an innocence lacking in a lot of current music.
