The ''All's Well That Ends'' EP has one from a bonus verse in an updated version of "In Medias Res" (which was listed in the lyrics of the ''Romance is Boring'' version, but is drowned out by distortion and instrumentation).

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Starting from around ''No Blues'' or possibly ''Hello Sadness,'' the band's sound has overall become cleaner and livelier, and their themes less maudlin and depressing, though they still retain their contemplative lyrical density.

* OtherCommonMusicVideoConcepts: "Death to Los Campesinos!" is one of the "In The Studio" ones...until the band starts being attacked (and killed) [[TastesLikeDiabetes by flowers, rainbows, kittens and ribbons]]. Its apparently the band's reaction to being pigeonholed and dismissed as a "twee band".

Added DiffLines:

** Come ''Sick Scenes'' after a [[SequelGap 4-year gap between album releases,]] Gareth's voice has gotten noticeably more gentle and melodic on certain songs such as "5 Flucloxacillin" and "The Fall of Home." You'll be forgiven thinking it's actually an entirely different singer.

* ArcWords: "Doe eyes" is frequently mentioned in their songs.
** Eyes are a recurring theme in "Hello Sadness," and the phrase "sad eyes" appears in the last three song songs on the album: To Tundra ("We take on the burden of all these sad-eyed children, with lilies bunched in our hands"), Baby, I Got the Death Rattle ("One look in my sad eyes, she had to concede"), and Light Leaves, Dark Sees Pt. II ("But they request that I leave 'cause my sad eyes are too much to bear").

* CoverVersion: A favorite of the band for B-sides early in their career. Aside from the cover of Heavenly's "C is the Heavenly Option", they also recorded covers of "Frontwards" by {{Pavement}}, "Yr Boyfriend" by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, "The Eyebright Bugler" by Deerhoof and "Police Story" by BlackFlag.

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Near the end of ''Romance is Boring,'' the subdued, melancholy, and somewhat bleakly-ended "The Sea is a Good Place to Think of the Future" is immediately followed by the much more upbeat "This is a Flag, There is No Wind," with all the bandmates happily shouting ''"Can we all please just calm the fuck down!?"''
