Noisettes make Contact and announce autumn 2012 UK tour
Streamlined pop duo to follow up Top 10 album with radio-friendly sound and live dates, tickets on sale Friday 17th August
In just a few short years, British indie-rock-then-pop trio-now-a-duo Noisettes have carved out a unique slot on the bedpost of life by being rather more colourful than most bland pop-acts these days. For a start, there are the costumes as worn by stunning singer Shingai Shoniwa. With more than a nod to the Gaultier-era of Grace Jones or the beautiful creatives from her African roots, the vocalist commands attention within seconds of prowling the stage. Within minutes of hearing the twosome's music, punters are hooked and releases gleefully purchased.
It wasn't always that simple - back in 2007 when Noisettes first appeared, they were a somewhat raucous live proposition with a nod towards power-rock and feral performances, not least from their audiences in and around London. First album 'What's The Time Mr Wolf' sold minimally and things looked done and dusted until Mazda used a new song, 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' for an advert. The floodgates opened, they reached #2 with the song and the Top 10 with its parent album 'Wild Young Hearts'.
Now slimmed down to a pair, Shoniwa and co-writer and performer Dan Smith are ready to wage war with third album 'Contact', a lean mean poppy machine bursting with easy-peasy choruses and the recent single 'That Girl'. Fresh from their Olympics 2012 appearance in Hyde Park, the band have also announced a string of dates for a UK tour in November, including Oxford, Camden, Manchester and Glasgow.
We will have tickets on sale from Friday 17th August, priced at £14-£16.
