On International Germans, Okey Szoke uses silence and irregular loops to experiment with ambience and dynamics. Each track explores different terrains and moods, beginning with plaintive, snowy textures before exploring compositions that are more urgent and dramatic (British guys in their naval uniforms), and sun-melted (Cowbell in palm). The album is bolstered by recordings made outside of the studio, including multiple anonymous voicemails received in early 2016. Attempts were made to contact the caller but were ultimately unsuccessful.
