Single, Washington Moon, opens The Orange Glow with its pleasantly weird vibe, and curious lyrics about desiring a Californian sun and Washington – the US state, not the city – moon “in the same room/at the same time” which turns out to be a lament about belonging to two places but only being able to be in one at any given moment.  Le Fey layers her vocals, which often take on a conversational tone and pacing, so that she can utilise her full range all at once while also providing the song with an eerie, uncanny valley, atmosphere – an approach which defines her vocals throughout record.  Thanks to this layering it is almost possible to miss the deep, watery, vibrato she is capable of.
