if you aren't a Mal de Mer super fan yet, this is the one that's gonna reel you in - hook, line and sinker.

Mal de Mer oozing with so much cool on this new sweet release. I love the momentum and the clever arrangements. It glides and fuses together the most groovy and enjoyable blend of sounds and movement. And Saskia, I can't keep my ears off you! There's so much to love in just this 3:33 min track. Impressed!

Another strong track and another reason we need to be keeping a close eye on this great new band.
