The Long Blondes

“19? You’re only 19, for god’s sake,
oh-oh-oh… you don’t need a boyfriend!

…I know how it feels to be your age.”

Those cool lines above come from UK band The Long Blondes’ song “Once and Never Again”, a smashing ditty expertly pitched at the pre-21 set. Lead singer Kate has that ‘cool as cucumbers’ singing style of the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde (also in NYC tonight at the Roseland).

Hear The Long Blondes at their MySpace site. See The Long Blondes tonight, as they headline the Knitting Factory and tomorrow night at Don Hills.
