Fool's Gold: Nadine

Another act (see Paul Simon and Vampire Weekend) that combines the concerns of affluent American with sounds from the developing world.

Once again, the results ought to be ridiculous but turn out to be enjoyable.

I am struck, though, by how similar world music can sound. When the vocals come in here it could be a funkier version of early Runrig.

Anyway, Wikipedia says Fool's Gold is a:
project of musicians Luke Top (a vocalist and bassist) and Lewis Pesacov (lead guitarist), who set out to explore their shared love of various forms of African music (specifically Congolese, Ethiopian, Eritrean and Malian), Krautrock, and 1980s dance influenced pop music.
