We've been hammering the new Saturdays single over the last couple of weeks. It's a song about waiting to have a kiss and a cuddle. The chorus goes "thirty days to us, oh-hoah-oh, thirty days to love, oh-hoah-oh".
The "oh-hoah-oh" bits are what this song is all about, to be honest.
"Oh-hoah-oh" might be the best sound (EXCEPT ALL OF 'ALL FIRED UP') that The Saturdays have ever made.
Many centuries from now when the dust has settled on the 2002–2018 girlband era and the history of the 21st century is being written it may well be noted that "oh-hoah-oh" is The Saturdays' answer to Girls Aloud's 'Call The Shots' "oh-ooh-oh-ooh-oh" Jimmy Savile moment.
The other key part of '30 Days' is a drum fill that sounds a bit like someone throwing a potato into a bin from across the room. We wanted to feature a one-second clip of the potato-in-the-bin bit but we weren't allowed because apparently the one second clip would fuck up the coming-very-soon-indeed first radio play. It is a shame because we like it a lot. You will hear it soon enough though.
The rest of the song — a rather upbeat raveular sort of pop blowout with a little more sparkle and subtlety than a couple of the band's more recent tunes — kind of drapes itself around the oh-hoah-oh and potato moments, and drape itself it does rather well.
It's out on May 14 and it sounds extremely good when the sun is out.
EDIT: And here it is. Keep your ear out for that potato.[youtube]iS0w66f3jpY[/youtube]
