The Noisettes Album Launch at Baroque

Shingai & Dan Smith
On Thursday 29th November, The Noisettes aka Shingai Shoniwa and Dan Smith played a show stopping gig to celebrate the launch of their 3rd album 'Contact' for friends and members at London's Baroque club. 

Shingai, the lead singer of the group started off the night chatting to fans in an amazing dress especially designed by PPQ which she told us she happened to wear “earlier in the day when meeting the Prime Minister, David Cameron.” The platinum gold and sequined gown included a unique gold metal crinoline which she wore over her dress. 

Baroque was the ideal venue for the album launch party as it is becoming one of London’s leading live performance spaces with acts such as Mark Ronson, the Kills, Delilah and James Blake to have already taken to the stage. The duo played an intimate 45 min set which included their hits such as “Let The Music Play” and “Contact.” Surprises were in store and it became a family affair as Dan’s father came on stage to play the harmonica along to some of their smash hits, which enticed the audience to cheer even louder. 

As the night wore on, the party atmosphere intensified, with guests dancing to house music by PPQ’s Percy Parker and enjoying Hoxton Gin cocktails.
