Rivals - Theoretical Girl

There is simply no let up in the richness and variety of new releases on offer and, as The Guardian commented a little while ago, "....it is a mystery why anyone in a position to do so has not already signed her up after seeing her play live.....4/5".

This is 'Rivals', the latest single by 'Theoretical Girl' Amy Turnnidge who is nothing less than a solo performer but is also often accompanied by three-piece backing band -- The Equations -- Kelly White (guitar), Max Taylor (bass) and Harry Bennett (percussion).
They are now signed to Memphis Industries and the d├ębut album is due to appear on August 17, 2009.

Just a little warning note:
Do not confuse (London's) Theoretical Girl with the short-lived late 1970s 'no wave' band from New York called 'The Theoretical Girls'. It would certainly be musical surprise but, as much of their output has been recently re-released, an easy one to make.
It has happened before, with a pair of bands called Ilya (see here for my post about that issue), but another reason to mention this is that the Californian Ilya are now well and truly in the midst of recording their third studio album and I'm very much looking forward to it.
