Four twenty-year-old Parisian girls form a rock band. What could be sexier? Well, they don't perform too badly either. The girls have gone from playing with Razorlight, The Hives and The Slits when starting out at the age of just 17, to releasing their second LP with Pink's producer and hanging out with Iggy Pop, no less. Oh, and they've just announced a UK headline tour in February this year.
Tomorrow sees the release of their new single 'Bitch.' Some of you may have already heard it on the cult TV series Gossip Girl. It's a grungy, slightly toned down Yeah Yeah Yeahs style song. Although lead singer Katty Besnard sounds like Karen O, she manages to make her voice recognisable as her own, not someone else's. 'Bitch' is simple and effective, it's memorable and recognisable at once and it won't be long before everyone's singing "I'm a bitch/ when I brush my teeth" and "I'm a bitch I-T-C-H."
Now signed to record label NYLON, the girls have released two LPs: LP1 back in 2007 and most recently, 'About Love.'
