Amazing construction and undeniable talent is what holds this CD together.
The endearing calmness of Death Cab for Cutie is obvious, but musically this is more interesting, and Anagram come off as a far more expressive and creative band.

The entire album evokes feelings of floating through a psychedlic universe, though you’re not quite sure how you got there.
Songs From Far Away is a brooding, yet airy collection best-suited for headphone listening or an afternoon spent gazing out a window. Thoughtful dreamers, you have your new soundtrack.

Anagram's indie/synth pop sound also has hints of electronica as well as dark and moody Goth appeal. With nice female vocals, fans of The PIxies, Soft Cell, Mazzy Star, Depeche Mode and OMD will enjoy this band as well.
There are traces of Joy Division in their rhythms, but camouflaged by very melodic, up-beat melodies that stay with you well after the songs end... Nicely produced, this album also feels like Death Cab for Cutie, but with more electronics and a female vocalist.
