"Meet Nicole, Olivia and Izzy – the new girls on the block."
That is what it says in the biog for Mercury's new girlband, SoundGirl.
"All hailing from London town, Izzy and Nicole hung out at school and began singing together before hooking up with one of their neighbourhood friends, Olivia – SoundGirl were born."
It says that as well.
"Influenced by the sounds of TLC, Salt’n’Pepa, Aailyah, Destiny’s Child and Rihanna, the girls are bringing back the classic sounds of Old School R’n’B while keeping it fresh with Epic songs and even bigger beats."
"Working with the people behind Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Beyonce, Cheryl Cole and Fergie, the girls are preparing to take over the airwaves."
Here is that it doesn't mention in their blurb: THEY ARE FUCKING AMAZING. We don't really know anything else about them but it looks from Twitter as if Betty Bloody Boo might be involved in some capacity (amazing).
Here are two of their tunes.
Very nice. As you can hear this is a VERY 90s-influenced sound and style and that is all very agreeable as far as we are concerned although we have our fingers crossed that the trio have an all-conquering enormohit waiting in the wings for their first single because while 'The Game' and particularly 'Walking On Air' both set out their stall brilliantly we wonder whether the band might benefit from appearing with a little more of a bang. Then again, what do we know. Absolutely nothing, that is the answer to that.
Anyway never mind all that because here they are a‑warbling near a window.[youtube]SBTCollP5CQ[/youtube] The trio are off on tour with Pixie Lott later this year on the so-called 'Crazy Cats' tour. Crazy Cats is what Pixie calls her fans. We don't think Crazy Cats is really up there with eg 'Little Monsters' but perhaps it will just take a while to really take hold.
