Stooshe Claim The Girlband Throne


Well over a year ago I wrote a post about a British girlband called Stooshe. At the time they were a relatively unknown viral sensation due to an explicit song called "Fuck Me". They continued on their merry way and finally had their long-deserved commercial breakthrough when "Fuck Me" was re-released as "Love Me" in March - complete with a cameo by Travie McCoy. It became a top 5 hit and the lovely ladies are now officially the next big thing. Instead of crumbling under the expectation, they have raised the bar even higher. "Black Heart" is the cutest Motown throwback I've heard in a very long time. I'm completely obsessed with this flawless gem. Everything about it is perfection. Beautifully understated production, killer vocals and one of the best videos of 2012 (below). Even the remixes are amazing! Forget about The Saturdays and those flop Korean girlbands The Prophet is always ranting about. Stooshe is the only bunch of babes you need to have on your radar!

To me they are the new Sugababes. Such flawless vocals and a "fresh" sound. I hope they are here to stay.
