Hello, Sugababes!

You’re looking good, a little different, with more line-up changes than The Fall, but still young, streets ahead of the rest, and worth your weight in modern, effortless, long-standing, top-shelf, greatest-girl-group-since-the-Spice-Girls pop gold.

What’s that?

New single?

Well, that’s some big, hands-aloft stuff. Packed with sounds. Strut, strut.

And twenty seconds in! Brass-bursts!


It’s better than “About You Now,” too, the light garage-rock lead-off bait from the last album — although it remixed well — just as it seems to take some over-the-top cues from both Girls Aloud and Diplo’s Hollertronix, which spells hope for LP number, oh my, six.


It’s lifted from an ad? For a British drugstore?

And Ernie K-Doe’s “Here Come The Girls” from the ’70s?

Damn it.
