By claiming such varied and genre-defining artists as Siouxsie and the Banshees, PJ Harvey, DJ Shadow and Led Zeppelin as cornerstones, Amber Spyglass evoke sentiments from a variety of minor-key rock sub-genres. From the complex organic rhythms and middle-eastern motifs of "Catalyst Groove" to the kinetic pop of "Hand in Position" exists a common thread: the seductive vocals of Kelly Godshall accompanied by a chameleon of guitar, John DeGregorio (x-Opium Den, Reflecting Skin, Annette Farrington).
