Pop-loving supergroup Talulah Does the Hula talk about expectations, ambitions and drummers with sweet haircuts. Plus, how they stepped outside the shadow of their previous bands to forge a whole new identity.
A few short months ago, Dublin-based pop combo Talulah Does The Hula burst onto the scene armed with tales of bad boyfriends and people with bricks for brains. Their sleek sound owes more than a little to old school acts like the Shangri-Las and Shirelles (with a little bit of April March and Dressy Bessy added in there too) and needless to say, anyone who’s partial to a hook here at Hot Press marked them as ones to watch from day one. Featuring former members of the dearly departed Chalets as well as Neosupervital, the four gals/one guy combo are a sassy, sugary beast who have a very bright future indeed and refuse to let their previous successes cast a shadow over their current endeavours.
