Breaking news for fans of the band Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head aka NPSH! The band is changing their name to Brite Futures. A variety of reasons were given on the band’s new website and my favorite reason is that their “love affair with that band name was just a fling. That lasted and lasted and lasted.” I saw the Seattle band in my pre-blog days opening for Lily Allen on the best party day of the year, 4/20, and I had a blazingly good time. The band sounds like the Scissor Sisters meets the Chemical Brothers with mixtures of indie-pop thrown in for good measure and according2g, that’s a great thing. I still listen to their debut album “Glistening Pleasure” a lot. Speaking of that record, check out the track “Me + Yr Daughter.” I love singing the lyrics “Me + Yr Daughter / Never been hotter /Touching my body” out loud as I walk down the street. But I digress. The band is changing its name to Brite Futures and if you click on their new official site (link is above), you can watch a hilarious video that explains the name change as well as getting a free mp3 their new track “Dog-Eared Summer.” RIP Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head and viva Brite Futures!
