The Pipettes - I Like A Boy In Uniform (School Uniform)

I hope you'll excuse my sappiness for a moment, but I just gotta say I love the springtime. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and there's a cool breeze on your face. The only thing missing from this picture is some catchy, bubbly, carefree music blaring from your car stereo (or portable MP3 player of choice). Well you've come to the right place, because today I've got you covered on that last point... let me introduce you to The Pipettes. They are a female pop band from Brighton, drawing influences from 50's and 60's R&B, doo wop and rock n roll. The buzz generated from their first few limited edition vinyl releases was enough to get them signed to Memphis Industries, the same label as The Go! Team. Since then they have released a couple of singles, the most recent of which was "Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me", a song so addictive it's making instant fans of everyone all across the blogosphere. If you're like me, you'll be impatiently awaiting the release of their first full-length album We Are The Pipettes, due on July 17th.
