The band is labeled a “dream pop” and “poppy”[5] band due to their nostalgic lyrics and 60’s aesthetic, crunchy drums and haunting lyrics. Dede’s music combines live drums recorded in a classic breakbeat manner with vintage organs (Farfisa and Vox organs) and other keyboards, overlaid with heavily effected unison female vocals and pop melodies
