Last night was BWO’s first proper gig (we don’t count G.A.Y) in London since 2007, and it was every bit as exciting as you’d expect. Their first UK show was the best gig (as much for atmosphere as performance) I’ve ever been to, and last night matched up pretty well. They only performed for about… Continue reading Living Out a Fantasy
Livvi Franc – Automatik (Listen)Livvi Franc is a confusing one. After hearing Now I’m That Bitch, I thought she was American, but then I read that she was from Harrogate! Then I heard her say in an interview she was from Barbados, and suddenly realised she was the same girl whose single, Free, I reviewed… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
There are a few fun pop events coming up in the next few weeks and I wanted to let you all know about them… 29th Sept – BWO at BorderlineThey may not have had the chart success they deserve, but it’s nice that BWO recognise their dedicated UK fans enough to come over for a… Continue reading Party Like a Pop Star
Fabio LendrumI discovered Fabio on MySpace a few weeks ago, and I’ve been totally obsessed with his music ever since. I hear a lot of new artists on my travels through the Internet, but rarely do I come across an artist with as much potential as Fabio. His songs are perfect for 2009 (a mixture… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?
Linda Sundblad – To All You Girls (Watch)I kept checking Linda’s MySpace for any news of her releasing new material, and as nothing was mentioned I started to wonder if we’d ever get a second solo album. Then, the other day, I visited and there was not only a new single but a video for… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
Nikki & RichThis Amy Winehouse-wannabe sound is getting really boring now, but after watching the trailer for Nikki & Rich’s new video I find myself wanting them to do well, because they seem like such a fun pair. They recently signed a major label deal in the US and the single, Cat and Mouse, has… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?
Alien Beat Club – My Way (Listen)On first listen, I was very disappointed by the debut single by my favourite act from Danish X Factor. On the show they were full of fun, so I was expecting them to release really jolly cheesy pop songs. However, when I returned to the song, I treated it… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
Representing the USA: Jordin Sparks – S.O.S. (Let the Music Play)At last we get to see ‘girl next door’ Jordin being glittery and fabulous and she transforms into a disco diva for the video to S.O.S. She doesn’t quite carry it off like a Minogue sister would, but since Jordin’s main purpose in life is… Continue reading International Video Challenge
Sugababes – About a Girl (Listen)I didn’t know the new Sugababes single was a RedOne production until I heard the words “RedOne… Sugababes!” at the start of About a Girl, but there’s certainly no better way to repent for Get Sexy’s sins than by releasing a RedOne song. About a Girl starts off well enough,… Continue reading New Pop on the Block
