It has taken me AGES to finally hear these babes; I've been hearing numerous and various reports of their absolute vibage and several listens to their new (debut) record proves that their jams are all real choice. Though it does sometimes sweat like a delirious, humid Australian day, it’s not as tropical a sound as I had expected (or as the name might suggest). Or, if yr a Bette Midler fan (or just really into her film Beaches), it’s not as romantic, either. Their emotions are muted like the early 90s American indie and 80s New Zealand Flying Nun lo-fi of which they're clearly big fans, preferring long and hazy and distorted meanders.
