With an extensive back catalogue of material that Sean wrote, the band actually spreads its wings across a fairly broad mix, encompassing some celtic folk referenced sounds. The lyrics centre on the travails of a world in state of flux and the confusion, and anxieties that creates. As a fan of lo-fi recordings, there is an interesting sound that Storie Grubb and the Holy Wars delivers, as it traverses the ground. With a focus on the voice the remainder of the sound is laid deep in to the recording, which gives it a pleasing naivety which works extremely well with the themes of the songs.

When stepping up the tempo the band has an impressively engaging sound that wrests a broad smile to the face as the quintet underplay their hand to deliver an easy to listen style that belies the number of instruments being played.

At some point the band will, I guess, decide on a more definitive direction of travel, until such time, you need a broad church of musical interest to get the best out of the material proffered.
