It's no surprise that Heloise & the Savoir Faire found early success in the U.K., since their flashy, stylish disco-rock recalls like-minded groups that are also big in Britain. Heloise and her crew come across a little like New Young Pony Club minus the aloof hauteur, or a less righteously angry Gossip. The band isn't as striking as either of those acts on Trash, Rats and Microphones, but they do deliver some danceable fun: the basslines boogie, the guitars shimmy, the percussion turns the beat around, and Heloise's vocals and lyrics are never less than attention-getting -- with bon mots like "give you the royal treatment like Queen Elizabeth," it's also no surprise that she's friends with the queen of raunchy attitude, Peaches.
