The Noisettes “Three Moods of the Noisettes” EP Review

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: , .

The Noisettes, hailing from London, have a lot of hype to live up to this year. NME has called them “One of rock n’ roll’s best kept secrets.” URB magazine listed Three Moods of the Noisettes as a 4-star recording. And recently Bloc Party drummer, Matt Tong, said that The Noisettes were the best gig he’s seen recently. Yes, The Noisettes indeed do have a lot to live up to this year. Fortunately, singer Shingai Shoniwa delivers a beautifully bipolar performance, shrieking, crooning and roaring her web over the equally diverse band. These vocals encompass Dan Smith’s axe and Jamie Morrison‘s drums, working entirely in sync as they wonder through the driving “Don’t Give Up,” concluding with the seductive, futuristic-blues number “Burn.” If Three Moods of the Noisette sis in any way an indicator of the future, look for them to move from a footnote in NME to the cover.
