Was going to post this in the new music thread but it deserves one of its own.

Haven't stopped playing this EP since I heard it. I think every track will be in my songs of the year list. It's by 17 year-old twin sisters from Bristol called MIA and TUESDAY - really great indiepop/powerpop. Frigging love it. Possibly 'Transparent Disguise' is my fave song...

Haha - yeah they manage to cram in Ronnie, Darlene, Dee Dee (The Crystals) and Bobby Sheen (Bob B. Soox & The Blue Jeans)!

Pretty good going!

I think the rest are just as good though. Lots of references in Transparent Disguise too. Here's the MASSIVELY EXPENSIVE video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4aotkZUg1g

Here's a video of them doing an acoustic cover of The Shirelles for a live radio session before they'd even done their GCSEs. They've been around a good while even though they're only 17 now.

EDIT: Oo the off chance that anyone actually bothers checking these links, this is my favourite video of theirs, for Here It Comes Again. Some great vintage footage - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U-SYqJ7F1M

Ah, that's decent. Have made and Xmas purchase.

But someone needs to heve a word with them about their website profile:

"...currently working towards the ongoing progression of their musical career and musical style by researching professional artist development opportunities to advance their careers..."

Strewth.

Haha... I hadn't seen that! I think it could be worded better! Or probably just removed...
