Very great show.
The band is featured as a duo-lead singing piece ( I am guessing Kitty and Daisy ) anchored by a pianist ( I am guessing Lewis ), a guitarist and bassist.
The two lead women are on stage wearing beautiful ruffle dresses ( strapped, with one green and one blue ), along with Lewis, formally dressed in a nice tuxedo. The whole motif is pretty much a homage to the 50’s swing-like atmosphere, and their musical talent pulled it off.
They played this song for Jimmy Fallon’s audience:
I have heard this song in the past, but was very unfamiliar when they had played it. But the emotion, the vocals, and the affect of the combination of all the acoustic instruments made it worthwhile to listen.
The song was very hard and had a head-bopping appeal, especially considering the only rhythm was created by the initial clapping of the band supplemented with one the of the girls performing on a single snare while singing in tandem with the other.
My only qualm ( and it might be because of my affinity to Burt Bacharach ) might be that towards the end of the song there wasn’t much they did to enhance their combined vocals. They didn’t really get louder, nor did they harmonize any chords with each other. It might have been the way the audio was rendered to television, but it didn’t sound as loud as it should’ve been for three voices to belt out the chorus simultaneously.
But the talent is there, the ferocity is there. Hopefully the fans will follow. I happen to have the unlucky luck to write about them without having a chance to expand upon my knowledge of them live, since they won’t be touring in my area. I will try to check them out though.
Here is their Myspace page:
