Mondegreen is the phenomenon of mishearing lyrics, making your own interpretation out of the one provided in song. A common enough error, but it's one we made embarrassingly in a review of Calico Club's debut EP Permanent Night. "She has her spells, she's using them well," sang PleasureFaces of the SA duo. In a sensory goof, we switched spells for "smells," leading to a facepalm etched forever in ink.

Calico Club lends itself to the mondegreen mixup in a very exciting way, burying their strong pop songwriting in house rhythms and ghostly reverb. The title cut from an impending EP, "Pure//Passion" makes its  intentions known on SoundCloud: "We must go where our secrets stay / our hearts can play / our secret must remain."
