The Noisettes performed an intimate gig for fans and friends to mark the release of their latest album.

The band - singer Shingai Shoniwa and Dan Smith - played at London’s Baroque club last night to launch their third album Contact.

Shoniwa started off the night chatting to fans in a dress especially designed by PPQ, which she said she wore earlier in the day when meeting Prime Minister David Cameron.

She took to the stage in a platinum gold and sequined gown, which included a gold metal crinoline which she wore over her dress.

The band played an intimate 45 minute set which included hits Let The Music Play and Contact.

Speaking about the name of the latest album, Shoniwa said: “The world is becoming to dependent on social media and I want the album to reflect the idea that human contact is still important in today’s technology focused world.”
