Tahiti Boy and the Palmtree Family: That Song (feat. Tunde Adebimpe)

Maybe you're tired of 70s pop throwbacks: those fluted little ditties with falsettos blazing across happy-go-lucky funk rhythms. If you are, you may still like "That Song," latest single from Parisian collective Tahiti Boy and the Palmtree Family.

With TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe aiding in vocal duty, Tahiti Boy (David Sztanke) and crew make use of the 70s pop template, but wind up with more of an introspective lounge sound, instruments welling up like orchestral tears. "That Song" can be found on their upcoming EP, 1973. Release date pending.

Apologies for the quiet September. My time was needed everywhere but here. That said, I'm happy to end the month with some good singles ...
