The Pipettes "Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me”

Memphis Industries’ latest signing is a refreshing throwback to simple ’60s girl group cuteness. With the polka dot dresses and dreamy hooks to match the Shangri-Las and the Angels, this Brighton-based trio improve on last year’s B-52s-thieving "Dirty Mind” with the charmingly upbeat punch of this follow-up. Surprising soprano vocals accentuate the saccharine shout-outs that turn the heated lyrics into a sweet treat. Expect an album later this year. (hype.non-standard.net/search/ pipettes/1/)
