Birds of India is best described as a contemporary model of guitar rock and roll. All old Fender tube amps, no effects or distortion, everything turned way up, and Kevin banging the heck out of a set of old Slingerlands. The singing brings out melody of the tightly structured but loosely played abstract guitar work. Jason Ei sings about anything from socio/political viewpoints, to experience with personal struggles and relationships and friends. Pop sensibilities are present without stealing the show.
