Injecting a heavy dose of 70s old school AM radio flair to their infectious pop-country sound heard on their debut album, Daydream,"Take It As It Comes feels, as lead vocalist/bassist Sarah Buckley describes, "like a really natural evolution for us and we're really excited for people to hear it."

The EP's five songs takes the band into new territory, expanding the scope of their "hippie country" debut and adding a healthy dose of meticulously-crafted pop that comes from the natural chemistry of the sibling band.

It's All Indie calls the track "stunning," adding "this is by far one of the most exciting new Country-based acts we've heard in a while."

"The songs featured on this EP, we really feel embody who we are and what we want to say in this moment, personally and artistically," Sarah adds. The EP is rounded out by the midtempo aching pop of "What Ya Gonna Do About It," sentimental ballad "Fool Me", and the swing and twang of the traditional smokiness of "Love Me Wrong."
