Biography

London, England (2003 – present)

Noisettes are a trio from London, England, formed in 2003 when Shingai Shoniwa and Dan Smith (formerly of the band SonarFly) began writing and playing more intensely than before. They met drummer Jamie Morrison in December 2003, and went straight into the studio to record their noisy and abrasive four-track debut, Three Moods of the Noisettes, which was released on Side Salad Records.

Eventually signing to Universal, their first seven singles are: IWE, Scratch Your Name, Don’t Give Up, Sister Rosetta (Capture the Spirit), The Count of Monte Christo, Wild Young Hearts and their crossover chart smash Don’t Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go).

Their debut album What’s The Time Mr Wolf? was released in 2007. Their second album, “Wild Young Hearts” was released on the 20th April 2009.

In 2009, “Don’t Upset The Rhythm” appeared in a car advert for the Mazda 2. This aided their popularity, as often seen with songs featuring in adverts. The song can now be found everywhere including the second disc of Now! 72.

The Winner Songfacts reports that Winner, the first single from their third album.will be released in the UK on July 9, 2012.

    It's kind of baffling what happened to them when Mr. Wolf is such a fantastically creative feat.

    Mr. Wolf will probably be one of my favourite albums for a long time. For me, it's the harmonic richness and daring rhythms that set it apart. Only listening to their more recent material, you'd never imagine that the same band could have created something like Mind the Gap or Iwe.

    "IWE IWE IWE! when are my old noisettes coming back?" I miss the Noisettes from the Mr. Wolf tour days. They're just not the same band anymore :/

    If you have not heard "Wind Blows Hot", please do--it's my absolute favorite Noisettes song. (All the Mr. Wolf non-album tracks definitely worth checking out as well)

    I have a feeling CONTACT didn't do so well commercially. Time for a return to form (a la Mr Wolf days)... Jamie Morrison rejoining again? Or Shingai retooling herself as a soloist for a record or so?

    At least of Travelling Light, I hear a lot of Amy Winehouse influence in her voice. Pretty good, altho I kept hearing "yesterday is only a fart away" which, kinda ruins it!
