Best Girl-Fronted Next Big Thing - 2005
THE HONG KONG
Yeah yeah wha? Some girls are bigger than others, and 10 bucks says this one's gonna be too big for New York City come this time next year. THE HONG KONG's vixen lead singer Catherine Culpepper would probably beat Karen O in a fistfight (probably already has), and the band's not half bad either. They're Blondie redux for the blog-rock generationpoised for scene stealing, one side-swept blond bang at a time.
