Bands To Watch #52 – Noisettes

By on Thursday, 4th December 2008 at 7:55 pm

Earlier on, I reviewed the Pipettes and I am pretty sure I have found the Thrash Metal version, Noisettes. I love Noisettes and I think it is hard not to. Big rocky riffs, brilliant vocals, huge bass lines and the fact three people can make such a huge sound should be enough to please anyone. I’ve also been lucky enough to catchy them live and by the end, the venue was full of dizzy kids and drained faces.

Their debut album “What’s the Time Mr. Wolf” showed the trio display their astonishing variety with elements of Indie, Jazz and metal all on the same record. The fantastically named singer, Shingai Shoniwa produces the gentlest vocals but she can suddenly explode with some wild singing like is feature at the end of the track “Break Free”.

Guitarist Dan Smith knows how to create ear pounding riffs and while Jamie Morrison is at the helm of the drums, the tracks will be fuelled with insane, galloping drum beats.

The band are spell binding live and you can see that the albums they produce aren’t the best thing in the world because there gigs are! You can describe the band as much as you like and you won’t be able to sum them up with the exception of the phrase “Amazing music”.

Their MySpace provides a great work-out if you need to get fit. Warm-up with “Don’t Upset the Rhythm” and then watch your limbs go wild to “Don’t Give Up”.
