SOUND Motown inspired, leaning more towards R&B Slick and edgy as always; pop with hints of electro 80s inspired electropop with a modern sheen

VERDICT A sleek, strong album, though the girls may have lost some of the edge which set them apart back in the day. Sadly, this looks set to underperform - though it’s actually better than their last release, the number one ‘Change’. Possibly less instant and cohesive than previous effort ‘Tangled Up’, but this album shows the Girls are far from running out of steam. In fact, they seem unstoppable at the moment. Out of the 3, they have the best album cover. At points the music is borderline cheesy pop, but this remains a very impressive debut (and only £5.99 on iTunes).

Alesha Dixon’s ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ hits the airwaves

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

Alesha Dixon’s new single ‘The Boy Does Nothing’ has hit UK airwaves. The first single from her new record deal sees Dixon adopting a more poppy sound – think Girls Aloud’s ‘Biology’ meets ‘Mambo No. 5’. Not a bad move after coming first on ‘Strictly Come Dancing 2007’; she’s taken her time rather than immediately capitalising on that particular victory, and on this evidence the waiting may just pay off.

The forthcoming album ‘The Alesha Show’ is expected in November.

The Saturdays’ second single ‘Up’ hits radio

Monday, September 1st, 2008

{mosimage}
New girl-group du jour The Saturdays have launched their campaign for second single ‘Up’.

The band’s previous release ‘If this Is Love‘ charted just a few weeks ago - at the slightly disappointing position of eight – and in typical 2008 fashion, the new song is taking centre stage already.

Band member Frankie (previously of creepy tween sensations S Club Juniors) phoned in to Radio1 on Saturday night to give ‘Up‘ its first spin, and a 60-second edit of the track can also be heard on MySpace and Bebo.

What do you think of ‘Up’ – is it better than ‘If This Is Love’? Do Girls Aloud and Sugababes need to watch their backs? And what do you make of this performance of ‘Issues’ from YouTube Preview Image
