Provides examples of:
- Alternative Rock: Mother Tongue is probably the rockiest track on Colonies.
- Ambient: Mouth To Mouth and Kingfisher Sweet stand out in particular. Canon Blue describes himself as being an ambient musician.
- Cover Version: He covered Crying by Roy Orbison.
- Dream Pop
- Echoing Acoustics: Lots of reverb here.
- Epic Instrumental Opener: Halcyon
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: There's a reason he's tagged as "experimental" on last.fm.
- Piss-Take Rap: Battle Hymn. It's not a bad song, it's just that he normally sounds slightly camp.
