Noisettes – Contact (2012): Review

And so the transformation is complete. In the space of three long players London’s Noisettes have transformed from retro-indie mimics to a full assault pop machine. “Contact” is a polished affair, splicing together the merest hints that they once had a genuine identity (“That Girl”) with chart oriented electro pop and watered down soul that wouldn’t sound out of place on any Cheryl Cole/Cher Lloyd/X Factor contestant’s record. Indeed, if you are attracted by “That Girl” then don’t expect anything in the same mould, because the remainder is a collection of superficial, mildly marketable cliche’s of modern pop music.
