!!! "The Tropes We Share"
* ADayInTheLimelight[=/=]StepUpToTheMicrophone: Martin Doherty performs on "ZVVL", "Under the Tide" and "You Caught the Light".
* AlbumTitleDrop: A semi-example; the title's dropped in the bonus track "Strong Hand," rather than the album proper. "Give me ''the bones of what you believe'' / Maybe they'll save you from me..."
* BoleroEffect: "Tether".
* CoverVersion: [[Music/{{Prince}} "I Would Die 4 U"]], stylised as [[XtremeKoolLetterz "I Would Die 4 V"]], [[Music/WhitneyHouston "It's Not Right But It's Okay"]] and [[Music/{{Bauhaus}} "Bela Lugosi's Dead"]].
* DownerEnding: On first listen, "Under the Tide" seems to be about a couple working through a failed relationship. However, in an interview with the lead singer, the band revealed it was written for a friend with terminal illness who recently passed. This information casts the song in a new, more depressing light.
* FadingIntoTheNextSong: "Night Sky" --> "Science/Visions" on ''The Bones of What You Believe''.
* GenreShift: "ZVVL" and the two remixes of "Recover" sound very much out of place on ''Recover EP''.
* GenreThrowback: To 1980s synthpop.
* GratuitousPanning: On "The Mother We Share", the opening "Oh ah oh oh oh ah" vocals repeatedly bounce back and forth between the left and right channels.
* IdiosyncraticCoverArt: The cover of ''Recover EP'' shows a symbol with three V shapes on it. The cover of "Gun' shows a symbol with three circles. The cover of ''The Bones of What You Believe'' [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs combines both symbols]]. This was eventually dropped with the cover of ''Every Open Eye''.
* LastNoteNightmare: "We Sink" ends with some weird digital gurgling, [[ItMakesSenseInContext which sound like the bottom of the sea.]]
* LyricalColdOpen: "Recover", "ZVVL", "Tether", "Night Sky", "Strong Hand" and "Broken Bones".
* LyricalDissonance: "Gun" has rather violent lyrics for an upbeat electro-rock song.
** As is "By the Throat".
** Most of their music could count.
* NonAppearingTitle: "ZVVL".
* NotChristianRock: Despite the name, they're not a Christian band. They chose the name because it "sounded cool".
* OlderThanSheLooks: Lauren is 27 but looks much younger.
* PrecisionFStrike: "The Mother We Share" and "We Sink".
* {{Retraux}}: Their songs sound like they came out of the 1980s.
* ShoutOut: The title of "ZVVL" appears to be one to ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''.
* SurrealMusicVideo: "Gun".
* TwoGuysAndAGirl
* XtremeKoolLetterz: They're named this way so they could be easier to Google.
** Also "ZVVL".
