New Pop On The Block

The Pipettes – Pullshapes
With each single they release, the Pipettes improve so much that I think if they release more than 2 more the world might explode from all the goodness! Dirty Mind was catchy and semi-ace, Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me was super-catchy and definitely ace, and Pullshapes is one of the best things I’ve heard so far this year. I can’t wait to buy their full album when it comes out this summer. [LISTEN]

Keane – Is It Any Wonder
This song has caused me quite a palava so far. First of all, like any 90s pop fan, I had to burst into the Boyzone song of the same name every time I heard or read the title, then I finally thought I’d heard the Keane song when actually I’d heard the new Sigur Ros single, and spent the whole of the next week wondering why everyone was comparing it to U2, and, even more strangely, when had Tom Chaplin developed a Scandinavian accent? Eventually I realised my mistake, but I had still only heard the Sigur Ros song and not Keane. And then, the other day I actually heard the real Keane song for the first time and it did sound just like U2, although I reckon if we pretend that U2 don’t exist then we could at a stretch say it sounds like the Delays. Even though I really shouldn’t, I do quite like this song at the moment. [WATCH]
