Their music features lots of complex instrumentation and vocal harmony, inviting many comparisons to the BeachBoys and Crosby, Stills, Nash and [[NeilYoung Young]], along with other acts from the [[TheSixties Sixties]] and [[TheSeventies Seventies]]. The general atmosphere often evokes a somewhat Autumnal feel, similar to the likes of NickDrake. Ultimately, however, the Fleet Foxes stand out it the music world as a very original act. The band's skilled musicianship and Pecknold's talent for songwriting have also attracted much praise by music fans and press alike.

* TitleDrop: Most of their songs do not feature the title in any prominent way, [[NonAppearingTitle assuming the title is even in the song at all]]. Often it is only a brief word or phrase that gives the song its name. Examples: "Blue Ridge Mountains", "Montezuma", "Sim Sala Bim" and "Helplessness Blues" .

* DoingItForTheArt: From interviews, this is the impression one gets of Pecknold's attitude to his music. It is probably the reason for the second album's long production time.

* ScheduleSlip: Their second album was originally supposed to be released in 2010.

Added DiffLines:
* MultipleHeadCase: The giant two-headed horned serpent from the music video for ''The Shrine / An Argument''. Appropriately enough, the two heads seem rather argumentative.

Added DiffLines:
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Some very bizarre creatures appear in the music video for ''The Shrine / An Argument''.

The prediction that it would be deranged was right, and then some!
** The video for ''The Shrine / An Argument'' appears to be animated as well, if [[http://fleetfoxes.com/videos/music_videos this preview]] is anything to go by, and fairly DerangedAnimation at that.

The second album differs from the first in several ways. The instrumentation features violins and flutes (courtesy of multi-instrumentalist Morgan Henderson) and fewer electric instruments. The songs are much more subject-based in their lyrics rather than being purely poetic. Many of them were inspired by the difficulties experienced in coming to terms with new-found success and creating the new record, as well as general reflections on aging and finding one's place in the world.
