The instrumentation swelled with fervor and excitement. The hi-hats clasped together in unison to sonically meld with the bass, guitars, and synthesizer. The five-piece post-rock band looked at ease and finely tuned to each other. Their vamping swelled into a spiritual crescendo before the drummer glided over his drum set with a fill to signal the start of the song. In between each song, amplifiers reverberated from the whirling and sustained notes from the guitars and synthesizers. In the middle of their set, the drummer placed a soft blue light bulb next to his see-through drum set.

Every song featured catchy and angsty gang vocals, as well as rough-around-the-edges harmonization that amplified the communal experience. The bassist and both guitarists wailed on Fender instruments connected to an expansive pedal board set-up. The lead guitarist had an array of effect pedals including a Snarling Dog Wah pedal, a Cereberus Tri-Mode Overdrive Distortion pedal, an Ibanez Rotary Chorus pedal, and a limiter. Crunchy guitars and a bouncy bass mixed perfectly with the organ-sounding synthesizer and punchy drumming.
