Musical macrame

Let me introduce you to Bo Pepper, a feisty, female-fronted four-piece with a knitted animal fixation, who look like they'll have the charts stitched up by the end of the year.

The needle-bearing Londoners weave together jangly 80s indie guitars and ebullient pop melodies, embroidering their sound with touches of The Primitives, The Pretenders and (what the heck)

The single, No One But Yourself, adheres to the band's poptastic (knitting) pattern and is looming large, thanks to some early spins from tastemakers like Radio 1's Huw Stephens and blog queen Perez Hilton. The video is something of a purl, too, with a satitical toytown yarn about Kerry Katona and Briyan McFadden's.

You shouldn't scarf (scoff) because it's darn good - and certainly not a cast-off. If you were dancing to it in a club you'd certainly end up covered in sweater [that's quite enough knitting puns, thank you - Ed]

Bo Pepper - No One But Yourself

According to Record Of The Day the band are jetting off to LA to record their debut album after being hand-picked for stardom by Mika / OneRepublic hitmaker Greg Wells. Good for them.
