Like an audible scrapbook, they meticulously gather secret thoughts and private sound recordings, embellishing them on record with homemade instruments and vintage organs.
After a few low-key releases the duo - comprised of Galia Durant and Carim Clasmann - unleashed their debut album Tiger My Friend on cult label Arable in 2004 before signing to Domino for their second long player, The Only Thing I Ever Wanted (2006).
The set instantly struck a chord with all that heard it and brought their homemade electronics, meticulously scored elastic bands and heartfelt pop into homes across the nation through a number of high profile syncs.
Another critically acclaimed album followed in 2008 – The Camel’s Back – after which Galia and Carim took some time away from music to embark on other adventures.
Never ones to stray too far from their musical roots, the Psapps return today (11 November) with their first new album in five years, What Makes Us Glow.
Despite the lengthy hiatus, Galia and Carim are obviously still unafraid to flaunt a childlike irreverence for structure and form, bringing giddy ups and downs to their homespun jazz.
The set proves the duo are still game for jumping on the waltzers and getting stuck in, as they record rhythmic snores, mooing cows and clinks of washing up bowls for a bout of found-sound heaven.
And, as ever, the calm of Galia’s vocals offer the perfect antidote to Psapp's musical kaleidoscope of rolling rhythms and estranged harmonies. Her voice is like a secret weapon, hitting an unsuspecting listener sideways with plaintive words and hushed tones that speak of unfinished dreams and half-realised nightmares.
This Wednesday (13 November) marks their return to the stage, with an album launch party at a secret location. If we manage to track them down we'll film their performance - so check back soon for some exclusive footage!
