Noisettes, a British band based in London, have released three studio albums, ten singles, three extended plays (EPs) and eleven music videos. They have also been credited as featured artists in one single, as well as making appearances on other albums. Predominantly an indie rock band,[1] Noisettes' music incorporates other styles of musical genres, including rock and post-punk revival.[2]

Founded in 2003 by lead singer and bassist Shingai Shoniwa, guitarist Dan Smith, (both from band Sonarfly), and drummer James Morrison.[3] Under the name "NOISEttes", the three recorded their first release, a four-song EP entitled Three Moods of the Noisettes, issued by Side Salad Records in 2005.[3] In 2007, Noisettes released their debut album, What's the Time Mr Wolf? on label Vertigo Records.[1] Described as garage-rock and compared to work by Green Day,[4] the album peaked at number 75 on the UK Albums Chart[5] despite positive critical reception and heavy promotion.[1]

The Noisettes are most well known for their 2009 single release "Don't Upset the Rhythm (Go Baby Go)", which debuted and reached a peak of number two on the UK Singles Chart,[6][7] and was their first single to chart outside the UK.[8] Following the successful release of "Go Baby Go", the Noisettes released their second studio album, Wild Young Hearts on 20 April 2009. The album saw the Noisettes move from mainstream styles to other genres such as "jazz fusion"-influenced pop and "hard-edged indie rock".[9] Wild Young Hearts achieved number seven on the UK Albums Chart, as well as managing to chart in other European countries.[10] The band released the first single from their third album Contact, titled "Winner" on 9 July 2012.[11]
