By now, most of us have pretty much accepted the grim reality that 2016 is here; that we must deal with a gaping 12 months ahead of us in which we should at least appear to be making ourselves better people.

It's fine. It happens every year. We're a week in now, it's pretty much summer.

But for those still struggling to come to terms, here's some musical tonic.

Malka's debut Marching To Another Beat was one of the underrated triumphs of 2015. A vibrant blend of polyrhythms and ingenious lyricism. So new material is a fantastic start to the year, as far as we're concerned.

While continuing in the same vein, still driven by thumping drums and tribalistic vocal harmonies, 'Wonder Why' is a slightly more understated affair. It seeps into the listener rather than bashes down the door. And for all the irresistible energy apparently inherent in everything Malka does, there's something coolly seductive about this new track.

Have a listen below and let's all hope more follows before long.
