By The Hot Puppies
A large slab of infectious grrrl-pop from Aberystwyth. That's a phrase you probably thought you would never hear, but if you hear it only once then it is a testament to this little pop gem.
The latest single from The Hot Puppies is infectious and seductive in equal measure. 'The Girl Who's Too Beautiful' is good on so many levels, and each level conjures up different memories to different people. For myself it recalled a mixture of classic Sleeper with Louise Wener at her best, seducing me as a teenager, combined with the generic modern day rules of new indie. It is sexually charged indie pop that will drag you from pillar to post, and confirm The Hot Puppies as a force to keep your eyes peeled for.
Wales is beginning to rock again, so you boring Manics and 'phonics stay behind, because The Hot Puppies are going to be leading the charge.
