The band's third album, E Volo Love, was released in 2012, and was also positively received, with The Skinny writer Chris Buckle giving it four stars out of five and describing it as "unabashedly romantica study in understatement delivered with finesse", and Simon Price in The Independent describing it as "gentle indie-pop jangle with echoes of Afropop" The album received a 7/10 rating from the NME

Musical style

The band's music incorporates French and English lyrics with African rhythms, with Malian rhythms and highlife identified by reviewers One of the band's main influences comes from Marry's upbringing - his mother was raised in Cameroon Marry's vocals have been described as "appealingly weedy", with a comparison made to Peter Perrett
