Coming Around: Duffy's Well, Well, Well

Ohhhhhh crap. I think I'm about to eat crow, because I have openly blasted Duffy since she first burst on the scene, with her piqued vocals and canyon dimples and everything else annoying and just, ugh, about her. With a new single, Well, Well, Well, and sophomore album, Endlessly (out in the UK today), I had every reason to begin yet another onslaught of heated tweets, rants and the like. But yikes, something sounds so right about it today. Shit.

With production coming from Albert Hammond Sr. (yes, dude from The Strokes' poppa), Well, Well, Well is funky and dare I say, a little sexy. Good use of shakers and handclaps, a tidy horn section, and a beat...an honest to goodness beat that is neither big room banger or barely there, but sitting in the sweet spot between.

 

Also, the video is hilariously awkward, which kind of makes me dig this even more. Newsies, teddy boys and the Duffster dancing around while flashing a peek-a-boo slit is like, yo girl, really? Equally head scratching yet oddly funny enough to keep me watching.

 

Ok, view the clip and listen to this chimpunk let loose. Also, the Digital Dog edit of Well, Well, Well is well, amazingly flamboyantly ready to ravage your ears. It's below the clip.

Introducing: The Bang Bang Club

It's been a while since I've featured a band with the preface of "introducing". This morning, we were gifted with the perfect opportunity to do so when the debut single from The Bang Bang Club popped up in our inbox.

TBBC is as much a band as it is a philosophy of sorts; fusing fashion, music and art. Prior to the formation of their collaborative effort, the blokes formed The House of Blue Eyes - a Warhol-esque collective of artists, performers, and designers, who will all be in tow to help create visuals to supplement their catchy pop tunes.


The Bang Bang Club will officially open for business on May 3, when the boys release their debut single, Chemistry. Remixes from Digital Dog and Seamus Haji will be included, and we love this entire package 100%. Perfect way to get you moving this morning!


Not only do John and Dave make guiltless pop pleasures, but get this, they're witty to boot. We swoon! Here's what they have to say about their creation/name..."The Bang Bang Club is not a real club, but if it was, it’d be a bloody good one. It’s not a tribute to the group of apartheid photographers with whom they share their name. In truth, they just liked the word "bang".


That, for us, is a win right there. Bang on, boys...bang on, indeed.
