"Best set of the day!"

“The deBretts are playing one of the best sets of the day. Their front woman is amazing to watch, sounding like a cross between Debbie Harry and Siouxie Sioux, we can’t take our eyes off her” - in the city mobile act unsigned review


"the debretts blow the boys out of the water"

"The deBretts, however, might blow the boys out of the water with their female-fronted post-punk. Part Blondie, part Yeah Yeah Yeahs, part maniacal stage shows, The deBretts have won the hearts of many a music fan despite their mere year together. The deBretts might just have what it takes to gain the edge over their fellow contestants."

"Living up to the hype!"

"The deBretts, however, might blow the boys out of the water with their female-fronted post-punk. Part Blondie, part Yeah Yeah Yeahs, part maniacal stage shows, The deBretts have won the hearts of many a music fan despite their mere year together. The deBretts might just have what it takes to gain the edge over their fellow contestants."

"Glorious Girls"

"Rattling along with post-punk haste and belting out cool pop classics like there's no tomorrow, The deBretts are a band you should be starting to get excited about. A glorious collision between Blondie, Ladytron and Be Your Own Pet, if The deBretts don't become your new favourite band within minutes of hearing them, then go buy a hearing aid.”

"the deBretts pick of 2007"

"The deBretts' brilliance is fast outstripping my ability to find new superlatives for them, Gorgeous on record but awe-inspiring live, they will take your heart by force"

- The Mag


"the deBretts"

"The deBtretts played Indiesexual at Catch 10th May 2007 and stole they show with their theatrical performance by the stunning Vonnie, flying around the stage and venue like a crazy girl possessed, shoeless and completely brilliant in everyway, shrieking out blinding tunes like ‘is it me’ and ‘hole in the head’ with a vocal performance resembling Bjork on a high!
The deBtretts bring a venue and crowd alive, they're defiantly ones to watch, expect big things from these guys, they won’t disappoint!"
- XFM Music Response Night


"the deBretts"

"THE DeBRETTS – The Rage (download) - Feisty jaunty spiky female-fronted new wave mellodic refined pop punk rock music from London town. Refined feistiness mind you, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Angel Cage and Siouxsie Sue and a restrained take a little walk kind of breath-taking rage. Fronted by Miss Vonnie DeBrett and her angelic demon-wearing twists"
- ORGAN MAG


"There s a wild thing loose in the bush"

"008 has seen the emergence of The DeBretts as an impending force on the London unsigned live scene; and with Vonnie at only a quarter of her potential power, they look set to rule in 2009…

"The DeBretts"

"Kicking off the first night of unknown acts desperate for the opportunity to perform at the V Festival were The Debretts, and boy did they kick it off! With a tight punky sound and an excitable female lead singer, comparisons to Blondie and the more recent Yeah Yeah Yeahs are expected but these guys are far from a covers band and are definitely ones to watch. "
- Smash Music


"The noisettes"

"The Debretts possess an armoury of catchy sing-a-long rock-pop-punk songs. ‘A Hole In The Head’ will get inside yours and take up residence like a friend who has been there forever and ‘Is It Me Or Is It You’ has a chorus that Blondie would be proud of. Fuelled with energy and passion a band that claims this is their fifth gig seems to have a very bright future fast approaching. Tonight may have started off about a certain Leeds band but in the end it belonged to The Debretts”

Bio

London-based, The deBretts, already heralded by Artrocker magazine as “ones to watch,” and on a high this year (having performed at club nme koko London, won rave reviews at sxsw and are now receiving aclaim in Japan for their first album release "the rage") the deBretts are a four-piece post punk-pop band with an infectious blend of Blondie/ Siouxie Sioux cool, Sex Pistols urgency and Yeah Yeah Yeahs credibility. The explosive live shows have become something of a legend and now they are ready to make their highly anticipated arrival onto our radars.

At the tender age of just four gigs old, the deBretts found themselves on tour with the Noisettes; they have now played with a plethora of bands including The Futureheads, The Holloways and the Mystery Jets. Gigging is their middle name touring in Austria, Paris and Rome on top of that making the finals for last years Camden Crawl and Road To V.

With just one demo to their name, the deBretts managed to secure themselves a huge amount of radio support from XFMS Ian Camfields Unsigned winners, John Kennedy, Steve Harris, Huw Stephens on Radio 1, BBC Radio Oxford, KBLJ LIVE SESSION TEXAS, SXSW podcast, live session with Frank Mccarthy on BFBS radio, all this combined with overseas airplay on various radio stations in Austria, France, Germany, U.S.A, Mexico and Japan and touring in Italy, France, Austria and extensively in the UK.

This is a band whose mission statement was to stay off the radar and play gigs to become a better live act before choosing the right time to strike, a band who have been stalked by every A&R man you could squeeze into a small place avoiding being signed at all costs, until they felt that they were ready to announce their arrival.

“The deBretts are ready for you....are you ready for them?”

The deBretts are currently in the studio writing, rehearsing and recording, and are due to tour in Japan in April 09, (CREATIVEMAN)/Pony up records.
