Contact marks the magnificent return of Noisettes, an eclectic mix of everything that the world loves about this duo; intoxicating, emotionally evoking, with a hint of uplifting, funky beats that will have you shining like the morning sun.
The butterfly is out of her cocoon... London’s most unconventional and unforgettable duo, Noisettes aka Dan Smith and Shingai Shoniwa are back and at their best with their third studio album, ‘Contact’.
With a career that has stretched over seven incredible years, their fizzy, witty mixture of all kinds of pop, given their own exotic twist, has brought them well known chart smashes like ‘Never Forget You’ and ‘Don’t Upset the Rhythm’, while their unique command of the stage has made them festival icons from Glastonbury to V Festival. Two years on, Noisettes rise to the occasion, making their long-awaited return with an album that feels nothing short of an epic ‘Winner’.
With the world at their feet and finally ‘Free’ to dance to the beat of their own song, ready to embark on a new musical era, the dynamic duo set-off to America, ‘Travelling Light’ (written in Simon & Garfunkel’s studio with August Rigo, whose written for everyone from Justin Bieber to Musiq Soulchild), leaving their friends, family and any distractions behind to start work on the album.
‘Contact’ marks the magnificent return of Noisettes, and boy have they been missed. The album is an eclectic mix of everything that the world loves about this duo; intoxicating, emotionally evoking, with a hint of uplifting, funky beats that will have you shining like the morning sun. There’s the rootsy pop-soul stomper and lead single from the album ‘That Girl’, the mysterious ‘Final Call’ (complete with a guest appearance by Deborah Evans-Strickland, the icy vocalist from the Flying Lizards’ hit ‘Money’), and the simple but potent ‘Rag Top Car’, which they recorded, as a spontaneous singalong with a strummed mandolin accompaniment. A song that in essence, sets the tone for the album. Written for each other, the song talks about their journey...two souls together.
‘Contact’ for us, is like a film from beginning to end, musically, lyrically, emotionally.” says Shingai. “The album starts with a big thirty piece orchestra and ends with just Dan and I singing and just the cackling of the wood and the flames of the fire for accompaniment.

Transmission Will Start is the perfect way to open an album. This 40 second chunk is a fully orchestrated work of art, leading straight into I Want U Back, which is amazingly catchy, quirky and sets the tone for the whole album. Final Call starts with an airport announcement,which I think is different yet it works, which appears several times if you listen carefully. Winner, mentioned earlier, was released in support of Team GB. It is an uplifting tune which will have you humming along! Let The Music Play is the weakest track marginally, but I like the "No's" incorporated into the chorus. Travelling Light is quieter and more personal, but takes a sudden turn in the last 40 seconds to keep you on your toes. That Girl is the first single and is a really summer-o-love song.
I would track by track for an album so versatile an diverse. As the final point, I really like the contrast between the begging and the end: starting off with a 30 piece orchestra and finishing with Shingai and a guitar. Pure Magic Noisettes, how do you keep on doing it?
