With such a melting pot of styles, ideas, and sounds, it’s perhaps inevitable that ‘Cannibal Courtship’, their fourth and most eagerly awaited release to date finds itself in the quite enviable position of being virtually impossible to define and ultimately categorise by genre. Instead, across the eleven songs of which its comprised, ‘Cannibal Courtship’ takes a progressive journey via late 1960s lounge cafes, new wave inspired surf pop, semi-acoustic folk meanderings and even the odd excursion into dreamlike territories occupied by the likes of The Cure.

Where the laidback groove of the opening title track has Nimol cooing “Be my sacrificial lamb” in the most innocently demure way possible, the more vociferous ‘Cement Slippers’ and echo laden pizzazz of ‘Durian Dowry’ conjure up images of first album B-52s and 1970s American cop show themes respectively. Delve deeper into ‘Cannibal Courtship”s exotic melange and there’s devilish calypso (‘Only A Friend’), harmonious West Coast pop a la Jefferson Airplane (‘2012 (Bury Our Heads)’) and introspective electro with an Eastern twist (‘Thank You Goodbye’).
