Wanna be in their gang? We do...

Quirky. Individual. Talented.

We'd forgive you for thinking that we were talking about your favourite bloggers, but today we're talking about something just as cool - The Like.

Described as a 60s girl group/beat combo, their perfect brand of off the wall pop will have you feeling like you've walked right out of a movie... so long as the movie had kick ass characters, classic fashion sense and witty dialogue.

This is never seen any more clearly than in Narcissus in a Red Dress - 'High school skinny fades away, and you're just left with Polaroids capturing your fifteen minutes. Ain't it great?' That's not to say that they can't do the cold hard truth wrapped with a bright musical bow; just try He's Not A Boy or Wishing He Was Dead. And if you can listen to Walk of Shame without humming it for days afterwords, you are better people than us!

Think a Kate Nash production of Grease and you're halfway there, but don't just take our word for it - The Like have stolen our hearts and we're pretty sure you'll feel the same.

Release Me by The Like is out now at any of the usual sources.
