Band spotlight: Ipso Facto

Ipso Facto are four London-dwelling ladies who make psychedelic pop. The best way that we can describe their sound is as a musical version of a scratched black-and-white photograph from the 1900s. While the melodies are sweet and childlike, with a sort of musical box quality to them, there's a darkly mysterious, slightly dangerous air to their lyrics. The production is rooted firmly in 1969, which is no bad thing in our book. Incidentally, half of the band are also members of Theoretical Girl's backing group.
