AllMusic has described the band's overall sound as "somewhere between System of a Down and Incubus." Team Rock described them as "imagine if Nine Inch Nails colluded with Royal Blood and Biffy Clyro and you're sort of close."

The band tours with tour drum sets for the live show, one for Anderson and one for Hawkins dummed "The Scorpion Tail" -- and animated structure created out of scrap metal and salvaged auto parts and weighing 400 pounds. As you can see, Hawkins rides in it and uses it to create digital electronic effects for songs.
