Since their first release seven years ago, the Noisettes
have unapologetically slipped between all manner of musical styles. In their infancy they tried their hand at punk and garage-rock, while the funky, soul-jazz sound of their 2009 smash hit 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' seemed to find them hitting their stride as well as striking a chord with the masses.
True to form, 'That Girl' - the lead single from the band's third LP Contact
- seems them venturing once again into new musical territory. This time it's all about the swinging '60s as Shingai Shoniwa sings about a blossoming romance over a peppy, toe-tapping melody that evokes the golden era of surf rockers The Beach Boys and The Honeys. Like a glass of Sex on the Beach, the result is instantly refreshing and guaranteed to loosen those hips.
