According to Elton John, when it comes to new music, it’s girls rule and boys drool.

In an interview with MusicWeek, the Rocket Man named Wet Leg, HAIM, The Linda Lindas, Nova Twins and Let’s Eat Grandma as some of his current favorite bands.

“It’s so great to see…all these girls rocking out and making the best music,” John says.

He adds that aside from “Seventeen Going Under” artist Sam Fender, “none of the boys are doing it, the girls are.”

“It’s a breath of fresh air, because it comes from innocence and pure joy,” Elton says. “That, for me, is what music is about.”
