The Long Blondes
Signed to the legendary Rough Trade label, The Long Blondes are a quintet hailing from Sheffield. Their debut album, "Someone To Drive You Home", was released last year to much acclaim and they will spend February supporting The Kaiser Chiefs, as well as headlining a tour in their own right.
It's not surprise that the 'Blondes have previously played with Franz Ferdinand, as one listen to "Giddy Stratospheres" immediately groups them together due to a choppy and infectious riff that makes you want to shake your booty. Kate's singing is commanding and mixed with some cute backing vocals, produce a delightful ditty that you can't help but like.
