The Regrettes @ the Independent

With a frontwoman who is only 16 years old, chances are pretty darn high that you are older than each of the four members of the Regrettes. But so what? What the quartet lacks in age, they more than make up for with their seemingly limitless and unbridled energy and their youthful and unsullied naiveté. It’s not like they sing about puppies and rainbows and butterflies. They talk about some real shit, like broken hearts, boys who think they’re “hot,” and those annoying after-shave bumps that seem to pop up whenever you attempt to depilate yourself. So if you thought you had nothing in common with today’s teenagers, now you know: It’s hard to get a close shave at any age.
