Sweater Girls

If Grease 3: The Indiepop Years ever gets made, LA’s Sweater Girls will be first in line to record the soundtrack. Their debut three-track 7” ep combines the catchiness and innocence of malt shop pop with the edginess and sweet darkness of indiepop.

Their lyrical preoccupations – stolen kisses, the traumas of teen romance and parental deceit – break no new ground, but are delivered with such charisma and swagger that they’re completely compelling.

There’s plenty more potential hits on their myspace and it can surely be only a matter of time before schoolkids the world over are emblazoning the legend Sweater Girls - right next to the declaration of love for Best Coast - on their pencil cases.
