New Blood: Gaggle


Describing themselves as “an alternative to burlesque, shit TV and bad boy band watching” it’s impossible to have any idea what you’re letting yourself in for by listening to Gaggle. Drapped in multi-coloured hooded capes, this 20-piece all female choir bring many suprises. As expected of a choir, the harmonies are the first element that you notice, but when combined with synthesisers and dubby electronic beats, the end result is choral music that, defying conventions, you can dance to. Clearly an intriguing concept, the lack of clear expectations makes the reality of Gaggle all the more exciting. Tipped on many lists for 2010, Gaggle’s debut single ‘I Hear Flies’ is out 22nd February on the tastemaking Transgressive Records, you can pre-order the limited 7″ here. They’re also holding a release party at St Giles in the Fields Church, London on the 22nd with support from the equally brilliant Too Young To Love, head here for tickets.
