The Noisettes

Biography

Noisettes (formed 2003)

Noisettes are an English indie rock band from London. The lineup of the band consist of singer and bass player Shingai Shoniwa, drummer Jamie Morrison and guitarist Dan Smith.

Noisettes: Formation & Career

Noisettes first got together in 2003. Dan and Shingai were in a band named Sonarfly and hooked up with James, who had been in Jaywalk Buzz, Six Toes and Living With Eating Disorders. They formed Noisettes in December and played around London over the winter months.

The band toured extensively and built up a grass roots fan base, earning themselves a fantastic reputation for their live shows. In 2005, they released an EP entitled 'Three Moods of the Noisettes', followed by the singles 'IWE' and 'Scratch Your Name'. It wasn't until the release of 'Don't Give Up' in November 2006, though, that the media and public began to pay attention to the band.

In February 2007, Noisettes released their debut album, What's the Time, Mr. Wolf? on Vertigo Records. Other singles released from the album include 'Sister Rosetta (Capture the Spirit)' and 'The Count of Monte Christo'.

In March 2008, Noisettes took part in a charity gig organized by Pearl Lowe (wife of Supergrass' Danny Goffey and formerly of the band Powder). The event, which raised money for Crisis Consequences, featured Graham Coxon, Paul Weller, New Young Pony Club, and Supergrass and took place at the Roundhouse in Camden, London. They also performed at that year's Camden Crawl, as well as the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.

In January 2009, Noisettes' new song 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' was featured on a TV advert for Mazda. The track became the second single from their second album, Wild Young Hearts (the first single was the title track, released December 2008). 'Don't Upset The Rhythm' went to number two in the UK singles charts and was number one on iTunes' own chart.

Noisettes have toured with a number of well-known and respected bands, such as Bloc Party, Babyshambles, TV on the Radio and Mystery Jets. They also supported Muse on their arena tour in 2006. The song 'Scratch Your Name' was selected to appear on an episode of The Sopranos. In June 2009, Noisettes played on the John Peel stage at Glastonbury. In July 2009, Noisettes have been selected as main support for Lady GaGa.
