It’s really late at night here (or rather early in the morning) and I have been trolling the internet while trying to get some work done as well. I stumbled across this via a friend of mine, and I have to say I’m fairly blown away. Perhaps our UK readers can enlighten me, but until now I have never heard of the Noisettes. Are they big? [Update: It seems like they’re a London-based indie band, and from the video we know they were on BBC One at some point].
I’ll post more about them at some point, I hope, but for now I just want you all to enjoy their cover of the Killer’s When You Were Young:
They’ve got a few other fantastic tracks and their album, Wild Young Hearts, is proud and varied and full-sounding. Lead singer Shingai Shoniwa has a beautiful richness to her voice and the band has been getting more and more press lately. They’ve toured with TV on the Radio, Bloc Party, and various other indie-darlings.
Here’s their biggest hit, Don’t Upset the Rhythm.
