London based girl trio, StooShe blew our socks off a few months ago with their infectious ‘Love Me’. The track, which reminded us very much of the Spice Girls track ‘Wannabe’, featured the guest vocals of Travie McCoy and reached a respectable 5th place in the UK charts.
The group, which consists of members Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold have now released details for the successor of ‘Love Me’ and the lead for their debut album ”Swings & Roundabouts”, which is released by Warner Music today.
”Daddy I’ve fallen for a monster… he got a black heart…” are part of the lyrics of the genuine heartfelt ballad ”Black Heart” which oozes soul, glamor and emotions. It’s a very strong ballad, which is different from the usual pop girl ballads as it shows off the vocals of the three ladies without getting the impression the members are in a competition among themselves to prove which one has the strongest vocals . In that sense it made perfect sense for StooShe to correct interviewers in calling them a girl band. They are not, they are three brilliant vocalists, who carry ‘Black Heart’ throughout the whole song and that’s why StooShe is so refreshing.
Alexandra, Karis and Courtney look amazingly glam in the new video, and are without a doubt three very strong singers with a distinctive voice, each one of them interpreting the lyrics of ‘Black Heart’ in their very own, emotional way. ”Black Heart” breathes an authentic yet refreshing 50/6oies feel, celebrating leading female groups such as The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvelettes which are being remembered in the video which looks absolutely brilliant and makes us want to go and rent ”Dreamgirls”.
New single ‘Black Heart’ is out today June 17 via Itunes, Amazon and any other record store.
