We tipped NYPC in our Spring issue off the back of two great 7" singles - Ice Cream and The Get Go. They hadn't quite nailed it live at the time though, with their bass player prone to the odd scissor kick at a gig I saw at the ICA in March (only Pete Townshend is allowed to do this). They've since signed to hip Oz/UK label Modular (Cut Copy, Wolfmother) and at tonight's label party were a revelation. They've become a must see live act. Though their primary influence is punk funk their future lies in pop as they boast a surfeit of melody and shout-a-long choruses; Tight Fit has an outro that could have been prised from an early Madonna album. The super salacious Ice Cream is out again in August for those that missed it first time around.
