The debut album from this female trio ought to be destined to the banishment of the back shelf of one's music cupboard. It should fit in nicely next to everybody's copy of The Darkness' Permission to Land and other fad bands that now seem like such a bad mistake. Their sound, sixties pop fused with a contemporary indie edge, should be fresh and original on the first couple of listens but after a while grate and irate like all novelty groups seem to do. However, this infectiously fun ensemble instead seems to merit an artistic integrity that isn't present in other works. This is no mere cash-in on the undone, it is a cool, fun, sexy and sophisticated sensation that simply gets better the more it is heard.

The group consists of a three piece all-girl all-dancing all-poka dot dress wearing singing line up backed by a four-piece band and this integration on screen is represented in their distinctly original sound. Their beats and melodies are jumpy, catchy and light, echoing the best of The Supremes, making you want to do the twist, pretend to swim or perform other equally nostalgic dances. However, the lyrics are so brilliantly post-modern, commenting so articulately on modern life that there is more to their style than simply nostalgia.

Songs like Pull Shapes comment on modern club culture whilst at the same asking you frequently to 'Clap your hands if you want some more?' and the brilliantly evocative Your Kisses are Wasted on Me empowers, inspires and makes one smile. This attractive group are gimmicky without being vacuous. They are fun, they are electric, but at the same time there is a depth to the pleasurable that makes you want to go back and revisit their tracks on numerous occasions. At times this relationship between the profound and the silly is exhilarating, at times it is poignant, but most of the time it's just good, clean and pure. This contagious album is a guilty pleasure without the guilt.
