MUSIC: Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes


Seeing one of your favorite bands live is both a scary and exciting experience. It's a huge bag of emotions, you love their music but you don't want them to disappoint, and when they come and beat your expectations, then it's the best feeling ever.

As I mentioned on Monday, on Saturday night we drove over the Ann Arbor for their Summer Festival, well the reason was to see Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes. We've been fans of the Melbourne based group Clairy since the Heineken advertisement in which Clairy is seen performing their song Love Letter, but we never got chance to catch them on their first US tour which if I remember rightly was last year. Saturday marked their first show of their Love Cliques tour which just happens to be the name of their upcoming EP being released August 5th. With Ann Arbor being down the road, it would have been rude not too.

Clairy Browne et al are best described as being a 9 piece band with heavy soul band with an early rock & roll vibe. There's certainly, at least for me a Motown feel but with more sexualised lyrics, in fact their whole performance is very sexy. Clairy and her Bangin' Rackettes came out wearing tight one pieces with sexy vintage-esque coverups with songs covering early morning walks of shame to other girls lusting over your man. And man can Clairy sing live.

So with the roller-coaster emotions of seeing one of your favorite bands like, they did not disappoint, far from it and admittedly it was a bit emotional watching them come on, especially as we were in the front row. Double yey.

They are a sexy band, they make you feel sexy, they make you want to get sexy with someone. That's pretty darn good by my book.

So I'll leave you with one of my favorite tracks Vicious Cycle, but you can also check out Jenny - from their forthcoming EP here.

Take a listen i'd love to hear what you think!
