The actress has assembled a pop supergroup featuring singer-songwriters Julia Haltigan, Holly Miranda and Kendra Morris, as well as eldest HAIM sister Este Haim, who's traded in her trademark bass for a seat behind the drum kit. Johannson cites Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go's as influences for the group, currently calling themselves The Singles.

"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," Johansson told Rolling Stone. "I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke."

Check out the group's fun, electro-pop single "Candy" below.

The Singles is a new direction for Johansson's music career, which has already included a 2008 album of Tom Waits covers and a Serge Gainsbourg-inspired collaboration with Pete Yorn.

"Candy" was produced by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, who will be releasing the single on his Federal Prism label.
