Spotlight on: The Virgins

Ok so this isn’t really quiet a Spotlight On, as these guys have been getting crazy hype recently, and how could they not? “Rich Girls” may be one of the catchiest songs since “Hey Ya”, with one of the ultra-funkiest basslines this side of George Clinton. Now you might say, “gosh, not another new age indie rock/pop band from New York”. Then I’ll say, “fuck you”. “Rich Girls” is equal parts Chromeo, The Strokes, and Phoenix, with a splash of funk to top things off. Their songs have been featured in both the CW’s “Gossip Girl” and HBO’s “Entourage”, so expect big things from these goofy hipsters in 08. Oh, and grab a copy of The Virgins ’07 EP here. Thanks to Dickson and Lansing for finding these guys.
