The Pipettes - Stop The Music
7" Single

1. Stop The Music
2. Who Made You The Doctor?

‘Stop The Music’ is the first single to be taken from The Pipettes upcoming second album, ‘Earth Vs The Pipettes’. A gleaming disco ballad inspired by the dance scenes in Spike Lee’s film ‘Summer Of Sam’ it continues the themes of their debut - speculating wildly on why boys remain a constant source of trouble - but projects these issues into a different place and time. The girls who once doted on the harmonies of The Ronettes now play out their relationships to the beat of the discotheque. Studio 54, Larry Levan and Philly soul influence the beat and strings, frustration and sadness make the melody, creating a slab of dramatic pop with a classic chorus hook that never ages. From Thelma Houston’s ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ to Robyn and Kleerup’s ‘With Every Heartbeat’, sadness and a fat beat always make for the best pop. It comes on limited edition red vinyl 7” and as a five song CD EP and digital bundle which includes a remix by one of The Pipettes favourite artists, Justus Köhncke of Kompakt.


"Stop The Music has the sort of chorus that makes you go a little bit wobbly and misty-eyed and we like it very much indeed” (PopJustice)
