Greylag’s sound hinges on the pair’s meditative, hymn-like vocal harmonies, complimented by folksy, bluesy runs on the acoustic guitar. Along with the help of local musicians who regularly join them on tour, the duo laid down the album in four days. The result includes the jazzy, airy meditation "Tiger" and the sprightly backwoods march "Black Crow." Stonestreet is hesitant to compare Greylag to other artists, but name-checks the likes of Wilco, Feist and Grizzly Bear as inspirations. "I was able to see the world through a fresh lens," he says of the recording process.
