Sourcing sounds from different styles of music, Tapwater have created what they call a world twang. Though the so-called twang is clearly identifiable in Steve Moore's nasal voice, the actual amalgam of musical influences is harder to disentangle, but I'll tell you what I picked out after listening to the record.
Old timey charm, Lunch is my reason and Tobacco row have a distinctive latin-jazz sound. Frankie Leigh and Better days are essentially country songs. Gary and Worst behaviour are folky. More bluesy tracks are Drowning without love and Big belly blues. See ya maria has an eastern european waltz feeling. But the exemplification I just provided doesn't do justice to the album's complex mixture of musical styles. Sometimes, even the same song ticks more than one box and is influenced by more than one genre. Give a listen to the record yourself and tell me what each track sounds like to you.
Though this is not an easy listen due to the stylistic intricacy, Too dark to blink is worth the effort.
