Music Preview: The Pipettes - Boo Shuffle

It's no secret we had a bordering on unhealthy infatuation with The Pipettes back in 2005-6. We still love them, and every single one of their polka dots (no matter who is wearing them).

So when the sassy pop starlets’ new single Boo Shuffle arrived, with a video which has dance actions and everything, we couldn’t contain ourselves- shapes were pulled and directions followed, even without being on the gin first.

Boo Shuffle is a return to The Pipettes’ fizz-pop 50s and 60’s retro-a-rama vibe after a foray into Studio 54 disco chic, and we much prefer them this way.

You can see the video below. It features glittery all girl London dance troupe The Actionettes and is guaranteed to get even the worst dad-at-a-wedding dancer, moving and grooving with synchronised shuffling.

Pippette singer and songwriter Ani Saunders said:

The song’s named after my shuffling hamster Boo (RIP) and more or less represents exactly what The Pipettes are about (the song that is, not the hamster).

We like to sing pop songs, we like to dance, and we like to have a good time. It’s got dance moves and directions, and it's the perfect opportunity for everyone to have fun and let go a little.

Let's face it, it's pretty gloomy out there at the moment and this song always lightens the mood.

Produced by legendary producer Martin Rushent before his untimely death earlier this year, Boo Shuffle is exactly what is needed to brighten up November and makes a rainy London that little bit sparklier.

Boo Shuffle is released November 14 on 7” Vinyl and download through Fortuna Pop. Catch up with The Pipettes at their website.

Now play the video, pull some shapes, then do it again.
