John Adorney employs guitar and unique instrumentation over smoothly sculpted beats to create deeply resonant songs that bespeak triumph and positivity. Daya, a vocalist Adorney has known since she was nine years old, figures prominently on the album. "Always," "Waiting for the Moon," and album closer "Mavoh Mavoh" (which means I love you from eternity to eternity) feature Daya's emotive vocals, helping to place the music in a different realm. The other standout is "The River's Secret," in which tamboura and English horn wind around each other in a mysterious marriage of sound.
