Led by the piercing, soulful vocals of singer and bassist Shingai Shoniwa, Noisettes are a trio of London garage-rock revivalists who channel Ike and Tina one moment and the MC5 the next. Shoniwa, guitarist Dan Smith and drummer Jamie Morrison began playing together in 2003 and recorded their debut EP, Three Moods of the Noisettes, soon after, releasing it on London's Side Salad Records in 2005. The strength of that EP aided them in landing a deal with Universal, who helped issue the band's "Scratch Your Name" single. They toured hard for the next two years, opening for the likes of TV on the Radio and Muse and gaining a large international fan base. In the spring of 2007, the group released its first LP, What's the Time Mr. Wolf?, to wide acclaim.
