Poppy and the Jezebels - Sign In, Dream On, Drop Out


Mollie and the girls have invaded High Street and are starting their own brand of dreamy pop protest. This song is just fun. It's catchy and it's fun and it's everything that a great pop song should be. I love Mollie's voice, it has such a character and I love the fact that her accent bleeds through. It gives the track a definite appeal that helps it stand head and shoulders above other synth pop artists. It is very reminiscent of the unadulterated spirit of girl bands that have gone before. I can hear some Dolores O'Riordan and Sinead O'Connor as well as a little Siobhan Fahey. This track was produced by Richard X (Sugababes, Liberty X, M.I.A) and it has huge potential to be huge summer smash. Even though they have been a group since 2005, their sound is put together enough to give them years on this track. I think this brand of pop music has an absolute place in the world and should be appreciated for the good it can do.
