Gaggle are the coolest choir to hit our ears since the Sister Act films came out.

The 22 (yes, 22!) piece alternative psychedelic choir are one of the most interesting and freshing sounding things I’ve heard in a long long time. ‘I Like Cigarettes’ leaves you with a feeling that you’ll normally only get if you buy your stamps from a ‘dodgy geezer’ in an alleyway around the corner from the post office. Just like Steve Reich records and listening to Gareth Gates speak, you start to feel you are losing your mind. But in a good way. A word of warning though, if you are trying to quit smoking, your real test of willpower will come when you listen to this. ‘Crows’ is equally as insane and scared the shit out of me on first listen. But, again, in a good way.

With their technicolour robes glistening, Gaggle look like sexual nu rave gypsies – and perhaps just as importantly, they sound like a Polyphonic Spree you want to fuck. 

I think they’re ace and I really can’t wait to hear more from them. I should buy them all a drink for bringing such wonderful music to my ears but buying drinks for 22 people? I don’t think so!  Sorry ladies.

They are playing Latitude this coming weekend, Field Day on August 1st and have a load of other gigs coming up over the summer. Details of which are on their MySpace page.
