1. Giring's mannerisms on stage seem eerily similar to Chris Martin of the band Coldplay.
2. While the band seem to borrow musical ideas from their western contemporaries The Killers, Goo Goo Dolls, and most notably on the song "Kau dan Aku", Radiohead (with the opening keyboard riff to "Kau dan Aku" sounding similar to Radiohead's "Kid A").
