Why Aren’t You Listening to: Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes

“Why Aren’t You Listening to” is an irregularly-running series at Rock on Philly, spotlighting artists in Philly and beyond that you should be keeping an eye (and ear) out for! The most recent series installment focuses on Clairy Browne and the Rackettes. 

Why you should be listening: Clairy Browne and her Rackettes have been spreading their modern soulful groove all over the place since their debut in 2011. You’re probably most familiar with the group’s internationally-successful single “Love Letter”, featured in an ad for Heineken in 2012. The song, from the group’s debut album Baby Caught the Bus, also has a totally bangin’ official music video that is equal parts John Waters and Soul Train. Recently, the soulful singers toured the US in support of the release of their follow-up EP, Love Cliquesout now.

Sounds like: The Mad Men/Dreamgirls mash-up party that you always wished your friends would throw.

Listen to: Their Daytrotter recording of “Toys”, a cheeky, sexy number guaranteed to amp up the amount of flirting in your life.
