On his Facebook page, Detroit-born, New York-based singer/songwriter Diego Garcia lists his genre as "alternative romance pop" and calls his sound "boy who sings about love," both accurate descriptors for his acoustic-leaning pop songs. On Laura, the former Elefant frontman sings about feeling spring "under this spell" ("Under This Spell"), pleads for a woman to stay with him ("Stay") and sings "baby, you know the skies will be clear/ And baby, oh how I wish you were here" ("Nothing to Hide").
