"Till We Ghosts/The Dance", is the first offering of the Congo-originated, South African-based project Petite Noir, which is attempting to form a new genre it refers to as NoirWave - "a take on Post Punk/New Wave with a hint of an African Aesthetic feel to it".
The first taste of this project delivers an ambitious - almost adventurous - fresh and unique sound. . The African flavours dance through your ear canals to the beat of a steady drum track and subtle guitar riffs. The vocals are soulful and simple, and the combination results in a trance-like drive to the song, carrying you away to a dark forest with big fires and music that drowns out the night.
