They meld the sonic adventurousness of Radiohead, the eclecticism of Super Furry Animals, the erudite dynamics of Phish, the innovative approach to the pop song of mid-era XTC’s, the sophistication of Steely Dan, the fearless structural complexity of Sonic Youth, the musicality of King Crimson, the atmospherics of Peter Gabriel, the percussion of Paul Simon, and the ambient tendencies of Berlin-era Bowie, all with an organic lyrical intensity.


Six String Orchestra producer, arranger, and musical director Dan Prindle composed songs for RANE, and also acted as string arranger on their introspective acoustic album From the Vine, Volume 1.  His work is all over the album, but is most apparent on songs like At War with the Moon and Somber Retreat.
