The Electromagnetic Escape covers love, loss, reflection, history and a comical ditty about a man named Brutus. Vocals on this album are timeless, as if they were plucked directly from a phonograph. Vocals within the album contrast themselves and range from classic folk/country to sooth vocal tones of an accapella group. Track 4, Goldon Apple, has a rather surprising mandolin riff that lends its strings to the song to blend harmonic sounds.
Arguably the best track on The Electromagnetic Escape is the third track, Alternate Plan. The track has the dirtiest sound of the entire album. Grungy, with dirt ridden notes falling off an electric guitar and drum kit topped off with raspy vocals, the Alternate Plan speaks of a broken heart never forgetting being cast aside.
