Going Places is formed of eight intriguingly different but instantly accessible tracks. The album opens with their signature song Lift Off a classic pop song with lyrics that embark on a journey to India. The reggae inspired Ganges River captures the experience of the city of Varanasi. Mirror Mirror is a soulful ballad about reflection and self-observation, whilst Start Again is a throw back 80's rock song, upbeat and full of energy.
