Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #3: Bo Pepper

Bo PepperThis year’s Road To V competition has been lining up pretty well, with some fab entrants that hopefully should make the shortlist and onto the TV. Following on from yesterday’s bit on Islands Lost at Sea and Thursday’s Bikini Black Special, today I’m taking a look at Bo Pepper, quick and dirty pop that is likely to become your dirty little secret of the summer if I have anything to do with it.

With some high profile fans (Perez Hilton, XFM DJ Eddy Temple Morris and Guy Chambers (if anyone remembers him?) amongst others), Bo Pepper offer Girls Aloud style pure pop, and seem a bit more bothered about where they’re seen than having the upmost indie cred (not that this is a bad thing by any means – we all need a bit of pure pop in our lives).

Fronted by the seductively voiced Dolly, all their press pictures and videos are fronted by a sock puppet, giving an element of cuteness to the band, and looks a bit like the younger sister of Flat Eric. Whilst it may only be a gimmick, it gives them something a bit different to the usual three guitars and a drummer routine that most bands do.

So, in summary: they might be cheesy. They might be pure pop. But give them a go – you might like them and be unable to get their tunes out of your head.
