Despite the fact that they're thought of as a cliche' and Bowie look-alike band, they had a fairly unique way of music since they're main sound changed with each single: "More to Lose" was a piano ballad with lite drum play in the background whilst the b-side was again with the piano but with strong drum play with lyrics that had an haunting and sad feel to it and i believe without a doubt that if there were to be a full album, "You're on My Side" would be the closing track. "Bitter Heart" on the other hand, was entirely different from "More to Lose". It was more New Wave and was very much in the style of David Bowie and Depeche Mode mixed in with abit of New Order. It was made entirely with synthesizers and a drum sequencer and had lyrics that were the feel of what we think when a relationship ends whilst the b-side was more of a feel good type of track with lyrics that were about being in love and being with someone.

The ever changing fashion of Gervais and Macrae was a constant view into what 1983 and 1984 were like, with Gervais changing his hair and clothes much like Duran Duran and Spandau Ballet in 1983 and then to a style much like David Bowie and The Psychedelic Furs in 1984.

"Bitter Heart" and "More to Lose" were very different from each other in almost every way but still had that feel of Seona Dancing to it and it is very sad that a full album was never produced and now, never will be. The demo tape most likely wont make it out since its rumoured that Gervais took it with him when he left London Records. Its also rumoured that one track titled "Out There" has been leaked from the tape.
