Rather than sticking with a more-is-more approach, O'Brien took the exact opposite tack for his third album, 2015's Darling Arithmetic, forgoing a group sound and instead working once again as a true solo act. To this end, Darling Arithmetic is possibly even more insular than Becoming a Jackal, with O'Brien largely favouring acoustic guitar, piano, and softly sung lyrics ripe with the scent of a relationship in trouble. Ultimately the pulling back feels intentional and fitting for an album of songs that always seem born out of O'Brien's most personal experiences.
