90 seconds of fun?

Seattle band Natalie Portman's Shaved Head have the potential to be very, very irritating indeed. From the high irony of their band name to the achingly knowing lyrics, they have all the sincerity of Gary Glitter at a Unicef fundraiser.

But their new single, Sophisticated Side Pony Tail, is just short and aparky enough to overlook the studenty nonsense and cause a sugar rush for the dancefloor. Imagine the Ting Tings without the knockbacks, or Bis before the Powerpuff Girls theme song.

And, despite myself, I can't help but smile every time I hear the line about everyone's favourite Seaworld Whale, Shamu.
