The Puppini Sisters On Getting Jilted

The Puppini Sisters may sound like a ‘40s girl group, but their songs are thoroughly modern. On their new album, The Rise and Fall of Ruby Woo, they cover Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love” and the Bangles’ “Walk Like An Egyptian” in addition to original material. It is really funny, though, to hear such an old-timey group harmonizing about things like not trusting the advice in a Cosmo quiz. On “Jilted,” the sisters, who aren’t really sisters, sing, “How did I get it so wrong?/I tried new positions, I learned his friends’ names, I made myself sit through football games…,” but we’re guessing that women back in the day had similar issues, even if they didn’t need to feign interest in ESPN.
