The Pipettes’ “Complicated” Legacy: Class of 2006 Interview

FUSE TV - The Pipettes’ “Complicated” Legacy: Class of 2006 Interview

In 2006, amid the mainstream explosions of Nelly Furtado’s LooseJustin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds and Beyonce’s B’Day, a different kind of pop group made their debut, and quickly found a fiercely dedicated following. 

The Pipettes, a U.K. girl group that wore polka-dot dresses, featured throwback choreography and focused on the AM radio sounds of yesteryear, released the debut album We Are The Pipettes that year, and earned acclaim for sounding unlike anything else in popular music at the time. Released in the U.K. in July 2006 through Memphis Industries before coming to the U.S. the following year through Cherrytree Records, the album was hailed by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and The Guardian for its slick hooks and warm post-retro sound.
