The group, who sing exclusively in English, makes music that can be characterized as folk-rock or melodic pop, but is also influenced by psychedelia and oriental music. According to a review by VG represents plate Home with the Girls in the Morning a result that is "... a beautiful, cohesive and melodic album of the rustic, organic and harmonic variety. Real Ones writes beautiful and atmospheric songs full of gorgeous instrumental detail."[1]
