Tom: She’s called the “Queen of HiNRG”, although that seems to be mostly by her own publicist. But she’s got a decent career behind her starting out as a soul singer in the seventies and switching to dance in the eighties. This is one half of her new double A-side, and the fact that it’s called a “double A-side” shows you how long she’s been going.
Tom: And that, sadly, a bit underwhelming. I mean, sure, it does sound like it’s straight out of an 80s HiNRG album, full marks for that. But as I’ve said before: audiences like a combination of novelty and familiarity. For me, this just doesn’t have the novelty.
Tim: Yep, that’s fair – for me, it started out sounding very much ‘middle of a workout video’, and didn’t improve all that much. It’s alright – just, nothing special.
Tom: Fortunately, there are remixes. And while the composition still isn’t going to win any Brit awards any time soon, this one at least adds a bit of life.
Tim: Yeah. Yeah, that’s a bit better.
