They are best known for their heavily American/British influenced style of songwriting, which greatly contrasts in an industry saturated with the same-old j-pop sound. It is for this reason that they're quite popular in Japan and have since spawned many imitators. Their style somewhat resembles that of a LighterAndSofter {{Pixies}} - they even have a song named "Kim Deal", after the ex-Pixies bassist.

Outside of Japan, they are best known for the inclusion of their music in ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', as Creator/StudioGainax licensed three of their albums up to that point for almost the entire anime's soundtrack. Several songs from it such as ''I think I can'', ''LITTLE BUSTERS'', and ''Ride on shooting star'' are very popular because of this. One of their singles, ''Ladybird Girl'', was used as the theme song for the Japanese dub of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' and created ''Rodeo Star Mate'' as the theme song for ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'', Japan's incarnation of ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. They recently made ''Comic Sonic'' for the ending theme of ''SketDance''.
