British duo Noisettes really hit their strides three years ago when their single ‘Don’t Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go)’ rocketed to No.2 on the UK singles chart thanks in part to its use in a TV commercial. The track also did the business throughout Europe and introduced the mainstream to a band that provided a curious blend of indie-pop, rock and soul.
Three years on and the band’s back again with a new single called ‘Winner’ – the first to be lifted from their forthcoming album ‘Contact’. Clearly they’d not been in contact with the Pet Shop Boys regarding their new track – the PSBs also revealed a recent single called ‘Winner’.
Massive Pet Shop Boys fans though we are, we have to say that this ‘Winner’ relegates Neil and Chris’ firmly into the silver position. Noisettes’ ‘Winner’ is fresh, soulful, fun and… FREE! Yes, the delightful Noisettes peeps have decided to give it away free of charge, saying that “the world wouldn’t be the same without freebies – they are the jam in the doughnut, the feather in the cap and in this case, the tip of the iceberg.”
Noisettes’ album ‘Contact’ is due for release in Britain on August 27.
