I have recently come across these great Korean songstresses, not the regular diatribe of Kpop, from the likes of Big Bang and Super Junior which makes you want to hurl from there sticky sweet tack. These girls are actually quite talented and also unsual and quite alternative. Infinity of Sound a.k.a IS (아이에스) play traditional Korean instruments fused with contemporary lyrics and funky beats. Unfortunately there is not information in English about IS. However they are well worth the listen!

This trio will blow you away, blow you back into the 1940s and relive The Andrew Sisters. They exude pure style as their voices send the heebie jeebies down your spine. Their retro inspired music also takes a modern twist with reworkings from Kate Bush, The Bangles and Beyonce.
Be inspired and do the 1940s Lindy Hop in your living room.

This Brighton born pop band has been around for a good few years but still remain undiscovered gems. Their retro inspired sound and look is reminiscent of Betty Boop, Northern Soul and Phil Spector’s 1960s sound. One track from their debut album, ‘We are The Pipettes’, stands out a pure and simple retro pop candy, the track ‘Pull Shapes’.
