Pondlife Fiasco is quite dark but some of the tracks have an positive upside. Drums are a lot rockier than the previous Heifervescent albums and there's a bit more overdrive on tracks such as Deep Sea Diver. All the tracks have prominent melodies and are led my shimmering guitars, strings and subtle hints of brass and flutes.
Opening the album, "When the stars fall from grace" is heavily laden with jangly guitars over acoustics. The song's about a hapless guy who can't do anything right for his lover. The more he tries, the more desparate he looks, the more desparate he looks, the less she feels for him. He goes away where he can't do any more damage, but still feels he can't do any good for anyone.
