BY JOHN B. MOORE

Afro folk has apparently made its way to the UK… or at least to the South London neighborhood of the kids in The Melodic.

Their four-song debut EP, On My Way, is crammed with instruments like a Charango, a Melodica and Kora (and I readily admit I have no idea what two of those three things are, let alone sound like). But the results are interesting enough, bringing to mind everyone from Rhythm of the Saints-era Paul Simon to Belle and Sebastian.

Though it’s difficult to tell too much from band with only four, short songs to their name, what little is here serves as a nice tease for whatever’s next.
