With an emphasis on storytelling they lean into well-crafted lyrics and wide ranging sonic pallet to guide listeners through an emotional musical experience. A single musical number may diverge from a waltz to ambient interlude to hip hop infused bridge and supported by R&B melodies. Longfall's genre bending is all in support of thematic detours within the musical journey.
The cinematic experience of 'What We Found' completes the 2-part concept 'What I Lost & What We Found'. When individuals focus on ‘I’ and looking only internally it leads down a path of desolation, depression and only festers anxiety. By focusing on 'We' enables us to find love and joy through connection. ‘What We Found’ is not without melancholy but the outlook is one of hope while grasping with self love, outward affection and mortality.
