Across the record Dang combines elements of Indian classical music with dreamy synths and ambient, with vocals in both English and Punjabi.

The album was envisioned as a lament to the challenges humanity faces and has inflicted on the natural world.

It follows her last album, Parted Plains, on Leaving Records in 2019.
