The romantic string arrangements on standout tracks such as Betrayed or Wildflower place them somewhere between contemporary folk and 60s pop; the harmonies on Woman of Secret Gold might call to mind Harriet Wheeler of the Sundays to some; the chimes and cello accompaniment on the closing title track leave you wanting more.
