For those who had started to think The Parlotones’ music was becoming predictable, this is a reminder of why they are often seen as South Africa’s best musical export.

This is their first acoustic studio album and the sound, while less urgent than the electronics that made us all fall in love with them, is just as addictive.

Fans will look forward to the softer acoustic versions of old songs Giant Mistake, Life Design and Should We Fight Back, but the new tracks, such as Tiny, Long Way Home and It’s Magic, are sure to be hits too.
