Domestic success clearly does not equate to waves being made elsewhere. Tahiti 80 should know: they’ve been together for all of 18 years at this stage, and whilst quite well known in their home country, they’ve never caused as much of a ripple outside. It’s possible that their new album could change this: The Past, the Present & the Possible reaches a peak higher than any that could have been expected, in particular when the group seems to have fun: they’re not afraid to let their playful side show, and should be commended for matching that with a pop sensibility that would leave many others in the shade.
