Single Review

The Pipettes Judy Single

Bubble gum indie concealing a sinister touch dances around, striking out with the combination of a touch of Phil Spector, Madonna, Regina Spektor and current upstarts The Grates to introduce a character we all know; 'Judy'. The Pippettes follow up on the top 40 success of salacious 'Pull Shapes' with a freewheeling expose` of modern life and one of its trying characters.

The trailing and steamy vocal trail of Gwenno Saunders leads the colourfully tunefully parade containing whistling guitars and also tag along lingering memories of summer. The Pipettes attempts playfully seduce you into their way of veiling life's troubles. Can they avoid the ever lingering pitfall of momentary attention and can the attention of the ever wandering modern audience? They've given it a bash.

Rating 7/10
