The fourth release from Westerly is a collection of three story songs set in California's Inland Empire spanning the Americana genre with influences from indie-folk, rock n roll, post-grunge, mariachi, and country. Exploring themes of justice, abandon, love, and lost faith the songs show Westerly's breadth and power and prove why Divide and Conquer said "Westerly's sound has a very modern relevant feel to it that takes the best parts of folk and mixes it with the spirit of genres like rock and punk that ultimately makes it a rare but needed perspective in the music scene."
