Awooga awooga! Attention, pop fans! Attention! The Sweet Nothings have a new keyboard player! It’s probably safe to tell you this now, as we have had our first practice with her and she hasn’t changed her mind about joining or anything!
Who is the synth-striking and secondary singing saviour of sparkly Sheffield socialist pop? She is the supremely talented Danielle Cope, who has an ace voice as well as a way with the keys. You might have seen Danielle fronting her other band, a very wonderful two-piece outfit called The 10p Mixes. Look, there she is singing with them, in that photo on the right! Happily for all concerned, she is confident about managing the gruelling demands of Nothinghood on top of her existing commitments.
We asked Danielle for a few words on the auspicious occasion of her joining the band. She said: “I’m dead excited about joining The Sweet Nothings. Not only do I get to be part of a band that I’ve been a fan of for ages, but I get to do it with a couple of my favourite people. It’s ace! I can’t wait to get playing some gigs. To sum up: eeeeeee!”
That all sounds good then, right? So all we need now are some gigs for our fully Coped-up indiepop juggernaut to perform at. Our next confirmed popshow will be the Going Up The Country all-dayer in Congleton on Saturday 1 June (indeed, Danielle has her work cut out that day cos The 10p Mixes are playing as well!). But do give us a shout if you’d like to come and play for you anywhere. T’ra for now!
