The album's eclectic music uses samples of songs by Beach House and Aaliyah's 2001 song "Rock the Boat". The title track heavily samples Siouxsie and the Banshees' 1980 single "Happy House". The track "The Knowing" samples "Cherry Colored Funk" by Cocteau Twins. Upon it's release, House of Balloons received rave reviews from music critics.
