The Pipettes Show You How To 'Pull Shapes'

The Pipettes are basically like British Barbie dolls (circa Barbie's stint with the Rockers), except with hipster glasses and slightly foul mouths. Their Wall Of Sound girl-group harmonies bely their trademark cheeky lyrics, which you definitely didn't hear girls singing about in the '60s -- same-sex crushes, anyone?

Watch The Pipettes' "Pull Shapes" -- it's the video equivalent of a sugar high and the girl-group equivalent of Weezer's "Buddy Holly" video -- and get dance lessons from the Denmark-Street-meets-Ludlow-Street lasses on Brooklynvegan.

Then see if you can wrap your mind around the fact that Lindsay Lohan-lookalike Gwenno Saunders was in Lord Of the Dance back in the day.
