The band’s trademark is its “reverently irreverent” approach to performance and commitment to a contagious level of musical merriment. “Good enough to be fun, but not so good that it’s not,” is how lead singer/guitarist Charlie Searle describes the music, noting that the band measures its success in SPH (“Smiles Per Hour”).
