Definitely one of the best young bands on the Chapel Hill pop scene! Like The Unusual Suspects, there were a bevy of young females at the Huguenots' IPO performance, dressed in mini-skirts, french-flip hair and paisley as these barely-college age boys do a very cool, modern take on that Beatle-esque sound!

We definitely needs more bands like this, carrying on the torch whilst putting a brand new spin on things!

06.16 THE HUGUENOTS @ LOCAL 506

Something about Chapel Hill four-piece The Huguenots is invitingly familiar, as warm and fuzzy as your favorite sweater or treasured vinyl crackling underneath a needle's touch. Part of that familiarity comes from the band's thirst for short, accessible, guitar-driven gems—the 3.5-minute pop song, naturally. The band's quick bursts of energy give it plenty of charm. They've got tightly coiled energy to offer, too: A little like big city bands The Strokes and The Libertines, The Huguenots' spring-loaded riffs and artful come-ons translate into well-played, sonic sloppiness that turns those pop sing-alongs into would-be riots. Should be fun. With The Modern Skirts and Weinland. $8/ 9 p.m. —Kathy Justice - The Independent Weekly (Durham, CH, Raleigh)

Bio

Often times, band biographies come across as contrived and ridden with cliché, full of "coming to a town near you" and "forming a unique synthesis of blah blah blah," often resulting in something that reads like it was written by a computer, nonetheless making the band at stake seem both prefabricated and entirely boring. So, in an effort to distance ourselves from this trend, we will try to be as concise as possible: We love pop music. We like songs that are under 3 1/2 minutes. We love things that are timeless (be it clothes, instruments, sounds). We love rock and roll. We are not going for "unique syntheses" or trying to "expand your horizons" or "create a tenuous but altogether real personal connection" through our music, we just want to see you dance. So if this combination doesn't make us sound entirely distasteful to you (and the music above is properly invigorating), come see us when we play. Listen to our songs. That is about as much as we can ask.
