It's not easy to forget the Noisettes's
stunning Shingai Shoniwa
, with her sculptural hair, perfect espresso skin, 50's movie star eyes, that glamorous fringed 20's white dress, and, of course, her voice in their new video for "Never Forget You". At once a soulful reincarnation of decades gone past with a fierce modern intonation carrying hints of Santigold or the enthusiasm of the similarly British (and similarly named) pop outfit the Pipettes, the Noisettes dance in sultry blues and jazz influenced pop that lingers. Watching the love story played out in between the Noisettes's performance in their video is time traveling to an old fashioned glamour hard to dismiss.
The UK has certainly already caught on...the Noisettes's sophomore album Wild Young Hearts
debuted at number one on the iTunes UK album chart, and is set to release in the US in August. Although you're going to have to wait a bit longer for the full taste of the Noisettes's heavy with feeling, rich with melody blues-jazz-disco-soul-pop, cherish their world in their new video below and ride out the summer in anticipated style. - Laura Yan
