The music on Ixora -- which is titled after a type of tropical flower found in Florida -- is a logical continuation of Copeland's emotional and atmospheric melodies. Aaron's lyrics, however, represent a more mature take on life. "My life is drastically different as a 34-year-old dude married with two kids than it was as a homeless band dude with a lot of young person drama," the singer says. "A lot of it's about my kids, my life and my family, and dealing with all of the mental issues that come with becoming a parent. There's a happy-sad tone to it all, which has always been true of our music. It's just less love songs than it used to be. In my mind, these lyrics are some of the best I've ever written."
