StooShe are probably the only really good girlband about right now. It’s refreshing to see a group who aren’t making music tailor made for Capital FM’s playlist, and are willing to add alittlelot of personality into their music.
Following two foul mouthed singles, StooShe have decided to show a slightly softer side to their personalities, with new single “Black Heart”. Filled with funky bass riffs, soulful piano melodies and brassy horns, the Future Cut produced number has an irresistible 60s doo-wop vibes, that will no doubt have you swaying from side to side as you snap your fingers and whip your hair. Okay - I doubt any of you will be doing that, but you get the point, it’s good.
What makes “Black Heart” stand out however, are StooShe’s perfectly arranged harmonies. Echoing back to the R&B girlgroups of the 90s, Alexandra, Karis and Courtney’s voices work so well together, setting them apart from rivals whose voices are almost indistinguishable at times. There’s still some fun talky bits here and then, but even without that the song has a distinct sound about it. I have a feeling that might make it good enough, that not even Capital FM will be able to resist playlisting it. It seems Radio 2 will as well, judging from the awful radio presenter’s reaction in this clip.
