The Mollys play a mix of original and traditional folk/roots music - country, Mexican, Irish, folk - using traditional instruments (penny whistle, guitars, accordion, harmonica and bouzouki) and strong vocals with electric bass and drums. Critics, music business people and fans have been stumped on how to categorize the music of The Mollys. Lately, I've taken to calling it "tangled roots music." As the band has evolved, more influences are heard. Rather than a deliberate attempt to be eclectic, it's a matter of whatever style suits the song.
