In an album that addresses that point in your life when you move on from your upbringing and establish yourself, there are universal themes here that the listener will relate to. Charli Adams describes her own Alabama youth as being a deeply conservative Christian start to her life. The songwriting here shows that she has moved on and she is willing to discuss the relationships that have brought her to this point. However, Charli Adam’s debut album is not full of the hand-wringing angst of Adele’s early albums. It is much more reminiscent of Canadian musician Lights and this makes the content very relatable.

The album fits in with the current wave of alt. pop yet it is sufficiently different to help it stand out from the crowd.
