The three members of the British band The Noisettes met as students at the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology. Shortly after forming in 2003, the group became a sensation in London, gaining a reputation for its boisterous live act and its eclectic mix of electro-rock, funk, jazz and soul. Since the release of its poppy debut album, What's the Time Mr. Wolf?, the band has continued to veer into new musical territories. The debut was well-received, and landed The Noisettes touring spots with TV on the Radio, Bloc Party and Muse.
