Dead & Born & Grown starts with an a cappella arrangement of flawless purity. "Wisely & Slowly" showcases the 3 part vocal harmonies of the sisters perfectly. The angelic and choral tones are warm and comforting but tell a harrowing tale (Tell me all you need to tell. Why is it you whisper when you really need to yell?) only accented towards the end by the addition of instrumentation. The stirring and striking opener turns into a more gentle and laid back calm with the mellow vocals and jangly guitars of "Gone Tomorrow." "The Motherlode," a Marling like composition, introduces an accordion and a beat that fair skips along to the beautifully balanced harmonies. A Country lilt pervades "Pay Us No Mind" before the ukulele is brought out on "Facing West." As the initial individual higher pitched vocal sings out "Your voice is like silver" you can't help but agree. The simplest of accompaniments and lightest of arrangements are used to great effect here.
