Girlband are the latest girl group to emerge from Australia. They are the product of a reality TV series that followed the girls from auditions, through the recording process and the release of their first single, the astoundingly awful "Party Girl". The whole project imploded when "Party Girl" struggled to make the top 50 and disappeared a couple of weeks later. The show was car crash TV at its best due to the hilarious bimbo antics of the girls. I'm sure if they had been given even a moderately bad song they might have scored a hit.
"Party Girl" will probably be Girlband's first and only release, which is a shame because they have great trash potential. Girlband makes Young Divas look like The Supremes but the girls do have some vocal ability. Like the Young Divas, they have contributed a song to the charity album "Songs Of Hope And Journey", which I, rather uncharitably, rubbished below. Girlband offer up a cover of "By Your Side", which is surprisingly pleasant. In fact, I think I prefer it to Young Divas' contribution, a cover of "2000 Miles".
If tragic girl groups make you wet, give Girlband a try!
You can order "Party Girl" from Chaos. "Songs of Hope & Journey" can be ordered from both Sanity and Chaos.
