Part French chanson, part dub-influenced reggae pop, and fronted by the gorgeous vocals of Tui Mamaki, this one invents a genre of its own.
It is jazzy but not jazz, there's not enough dub to make it chill-out music, and the lyrics which shuffle French and English effortless make it slightly exotic and mysterious.
Oh, and there is a pleasant evocation of the Middle East (which harks back to some members being the world music ensemble Ishta)
And it came out of the bush of West Auckland.
