EDITORS’ NOTES

This Australian sextet’s second album is a whirlwind of nu-funk, neo-soul, and electronic. The band exhibits the chops of a jazz fusion ensemble, augmenting tracks with small yet delightful details, from the classic hip-hop piano break that closes “Swamp Thing” to the stop-start beats of “Breathing Underwater” that sound like gulps of air. Throughout, lead singer and rhythm guitarist Nai Palm’s elastic vocals explore the nuances of yearning and desire, as she yelps, coos, riffs, and lures us in.
