We have been keeping an close eye on The Real Heat for a while now to see what the hell they are all about.
After much deliberation (that's 'deliberation' in the sense of 'remembering to do a thing about them') we have come to the conclusion that they might be the best new band of the 2007 that we haven't already written about.
Here are some reasons for that.
» They are essentially a brilliantly foul mouthed and modern Mis-Teeq.
» Three out of four songs on their MySpace page are amazing, meaning they have recorded as many truly amazing songs as Bob Dylan, Nirvana and Lisa Scott-Lee PUT TOGETHER.
» Lyrics such as 'I wanna fuck fuck fuck but your heart's not in it' immediately set the band apart from being a bit like Snow Patrol.
» None of the above-mentioned songs are ballads.
» The small one in the picture isn't an actual band member FYI.
» They manage to straddle the genre boundary between gay electro and urban electro quite deftly. 'Mixed audience' ahoy.
» They call themselves Shaki, Zaza and Suki.
» Simon Cowell says of them: "The Real Heat are like how I take my coffee; dark, hot and sweet". He hasn't signed them though. He must be a tea drinker, eh viewers!?11??
'Hotgirl' and 'Stand And Deliver' are available to download for free from their MySpace page. Which is right here.
