Here are the Long Blondes



And they appear to be having a rest surrounded by Kate Jackson's shoe collection, and NOT some sort of indie rock satanic ritual (Kate: "Don't burn the Manolos etc").

The Long Blondes (none of which are blondes--IRONY ALERT!) are releasing a new album entitled Couples very soon, and the first single is "Century". Now, let us begin by saying that last year's Someone To Drive You Home pulled off the very precarious feat of disguising a Very Good Pop Album as an OK Indie Rock Album, which fooled people with good hair into buying it, but unfortunately NOT mainstream people who don't give two shits about a band from Sheffield, UK whose main influences seem to be comprised only of Jarvis Cocker, Betty Paige and Lauren Bacall. The question we are now posing into the Pop Ether is, will Couples succeed where Someone failed, and launch this deserving band into the next strata of fame, glory, lucrative recording contracts, etc etc? SUSPENSE.

The short answer is no, because while "Century" is Good, it's also a load of weird shit that nobody will understand. Shame.
