Music: The Ditty Bops

with 2 comments

So I know from the name they sound like the type of band that would play at some 5 year olds birthday party, but really the Ditty Bops are a lot more grown up. In fact if you listened to their music, they don’t even seem like they are from this era. They make music thay you would dance the charleston to or the kind of music you’d hear in a movie from the 30’s or 40’s but of course a bit more updated and a bit more edgy.

They aren’t just a band trying to copy an old style of music, they totally make it their own and they have fun with it, if you watch their videos they are far from old fashioned, My favorite video “Wishful Thinking” (that you can watch in this post btw) has the girls in lingerie punching each other out, shooting arrows and throwing knives at each other. Definitly not the kind of stuff grandma use to see. Thats what great about the Ditty Bops, you can play the music for anyone and they will think its delightful, but the girls are actually far from angelic.
