New Music : Scarlett Johansson In New Band With A Haim Sister


Scarlett Johansson has a new project.  She’s the vocalist in a band with one of the Haim sisters (Este), Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, and Julia Haltigan. They’ve called themselves The Singles.

Whoops there’s another band with that name, so they’ve been served with a cease and desist order.   The debut single is called “Candy” and is produced by Dave Sitek from TV on the Radio.

Scarlett is no stranger to the music gig. In 2008 she released an album of Tom Waits covers and in 2009 made a record with Pete Yorn. Both of these albums were firmly in the indie camp. With this new venture it’s a sideways step to pop.

According to Johansson who spoke with Rolling Stone :


“I love Grimes. And I love the Bangles. And I love the Go-Go’s. I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.”

Here’s the audio.
