CHOON OF THE DAY: "GOTS TO GIVE THE GIRL" - Unperfect


Last time I was THIS excited about a new girl band was when Sugababes' dropped their magnificent debut single "Overload" back in 2000... Well maybe once more when I heard "(H)Ours" by Juce 3 years ago. Any information about this up & coming quartet is scarce at the minute but what we know is that Unperfect have just released one of the most sophisticated, effortlessly cool pop singles I've heard in months. A mélange of genres, surprising choice of instruments and delectably subtle 90's echoes make "Gots to Give the Girl" such an instantly appealing, somewhat familiar and immediately catchy groove. On top of the sleek production, these girls can also sing! I'm gonna keep an eye on Soipan, Chloe, Tiah and Siobhan as I sense big things just around the corner.





And here are the songs by Sugababes and Juce I mentioned above:

SHREM'S CLUB BIZARRE PRESENTS: "HIGH LIGHTS" - Charlotte Adigéry


It seemed impossible to top Charlotte Adigéry's previous single, the tribal-beat throbbing, highly entrancing "Paténipat" which sounded unlike anything else we heard throughout 2018. Now the Belgian-Martiniquaise singer, also known in muso circles for her side project WWWater, is enticing us with another song announcing the release of her 2nd EP "Zandoli" scheduled for 8th Feb via DEEWEE. "High Lights" is an entertainingly eccentric ode to synthetic wigs in the form of a kooky synth-pop number which is strangely catchy in its own unique way. What better a tune to revive my Club Bizarre thread with.




And here's "Paténipat" again in case you missed it...
