It seems their new work is more serious/urgent than their previous work when I saw them years ago in Brooklyn - their songs used to have science, sci-fi, and sometimes even comedic themes laid over beautiful orchestral pop. Now it seems the themes of their lyrics are all grown up: self-doubt, anxiety over the future, etc. But the lovely string arrangements remain! And they still aren't afraid to put a little comedy into their music, as evidenced in their song Swipe, a song about dating on Tinder.
So, long story short: be there. It will be fun.
