We Are The Pipettes

We Are The PipettesI'm sure it's not just me who has a couple of songs that characterise each season. One of the songs that will always remind me of this summer is the wonderfully upbeat "Pull Shapes" by The Pipettes. And for once I've actually gone as far as buying myself the album, from an actual shop. It was money well spent.
The Pipettes are RiotBecki, Gwenno, and Rosay who got together (with backing group The Cassette) in Brighton. Their sound combines classic doo–wop themes with "punk pop–girl power". They've gone back to the beginnings of great popular music and have brought it kicking and screaming into the 21st century. The album reverses typical gender roles ("One Night Stand") and provides great relief for everyone sick of women asking why their man left them ("Why Did You Stay?").

If you havent noticed yet, were the prettiest girls youve ever metThey first came to my attention with the very punchy "Your Kisses are Wasted On Me" which was released back in March. Unfortunatley, because of uni work I wasn't able to truly register the song. The hugely catchy chant opening is now thoroughly stuck in my subconscious though. And it was very well followed by "Pull Shapes" which is a top (if cheesey in parts) tune.
"We Are The Pipettes" is their debut album, and it's full of foot–tapping tunes (okay I can't stop dancing to it) and empowering lyrics. The mixture of smooth vibes and gritty vocals makes for a great sound, perfect for sitting in that soda bar, or cruising down the beachfront in a '59 Cadillac.
