Biography

Brighton, United Kingdom (2003 – present)

The Pipettes are Gwenno and Ani Saunders. They are a traditional girl pop group from Brighton, England. Both of the girls are singers in the group with Gwenno occasionally taking to the keyboard. The Pipettes (at the time consisting of Julia Clark-Lowes, Rose Elinor Dougall, and Becki Stephens) and their backing band, The Cassette, formed at a seaside party in Brighton in 2003 and have since wowed audiences with their trademark polka dot dresses, doowop anthems and choreographed hand movements.

Their first major single, Dirty Mind, reached #61 in the UK singles charts with the follow-up, Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me, reaching #35 in April 2006. Their album, We Are The Pipettes, was released on 17th July including the new single, Pull Shapes which reached #26 in the UK Top 40 Singles Chart, after being released on 3rd July. We Are the Pipettes reached #41 in the album charts after its first week of release. Judy was the 4th single to be released from We Are the Pipettes; it failed to reach the UK Top 40, coming in at #46. However, it did reach #1 on the Indie Chart.

In 2005, The Pipettes completed successful headline tours in the UK and Europe, as well as high-profile support slots with The Magic Numbers, Graham Coxon, British Sea Power and The Go! Team, that has won them fans in high places including Radio One DJ Huw Stephens, and Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe.
