NPR noted of the group, “After the first listen to their latest full-length release The Remains of an Effort, it’s clear that Train Company is more than a blues band. The group crafts a diverse multi-layered sound with discernible traces of jazz, pop, and even orchestral arrangements, while effortlessly switching between anthemic rock vocals and airy indie rock introspection.”
