albums of 2013, and I've been a huge fan since 2012. After waiting nearly two years for new material, I certainly can't say I'm disappointed. "Bibi" is the brand-new 7", and I absolutely LOVE it! If you've never heard The Sensibles before, imagine the The Muffs if they'd spoken Italian and been the house band for a children's television show. "Bibi" is upbeat and super poppy, and it nails that perfect blend of sweet melodies and tough guitars. But it's B-side "Little Girl" that really steals the show - pulling back from the dizzying pace The Sensibles are known for and embracing pure power pop with classic '60s influences. I'm pretty sure I'll be whistling that melody for the next 40 days. And I love the positive message about holding out hope through tough times. I highly recommend checking out the video, which is very touching. Stella is an exceptionally talented artist and one of the most likable singers you'll ever come across.
The vinyl for "Bibi" is limited to 200 copies. Supplies will go fast, so email the band if you want to order one. This is the first in a series of three 7" singles. I can't wait for the next installment!
