The new single from UK pop/rock duo The Pipettes is called “Call Me” and it’s a jolly good time. Up-tempo and dancey, the song has a fantastic retro-sound to it that I think has always worked for the group. While “RETRO” in this case might mean the 80s, it doesn’t sound super cheesy rather it’s an updated, modern 80s sound. Despite various lineup changes, the group seems to work as a duo. The video is bright and cheerful with colors that POP, not to mention Gwenno and Ani Saunders looking beautiful. The single will be released on July 19th via Fortuna Pop! Records, followed by their album, Earth vs. The Pipettes, this fall. Make sure you check out their super fabulous previous single “Stop The Music” if you haven’t already.
