The Long Blondes, from Sheffield (England), continue a Brit-pop tradition of catchy, naive, romantic
guitar-driven groups fronted by female vocalists (in this case vocalist Kate Jackson).
Someone To Drive You Home (Rough Trade, 2007) packed a handful of
sprightly ditties (Weekend Without Makeup, Giddy Stratospheres)
and a general sense of polite juvenile madness.
The main novelty on Couples (2008) was the
disco-music of Century. Kate Jackson stole the show in all the songs,
but none of the songs was really much of a song to start with. The album is
divided in nostalgic nods to the electronic dance music of 1970s (Guilt, Nostalgia) and bolder post-rock constructs still rooted in pop and
dance (Round the Hairpin, I'm Going To Hell).
