Ones to Watch in 2011...The Scarletz
"Quirky pop with an Apple on top!" Yep. That just about describes new UK pop group The Scarletz. The Scarletz are 4 lovely ladies from London - Bryony Jobes, Claire-Martyne Newman, Katiya Borlante and Tahnee Lee - and together they make music. I am LOVING these girls so far. I've actually been loving them even before I heard anything from them. You see...they all started following me on Twitter, which of course sparked my initial interest. First I got a follow request from 'The Scarletz' followed one by one by each of the girls. No better way to a Tweeters heart than through Twitter, is what I always say.
Today, the girls unveiled a sneak peak at their first official single, "Messed Up" and I can't stop listening. It kind of reminds me of what Olly Murs' music could have been had he been female and joined by 3 lovely ladies. I don't mean this is a bad thing at all. It's sweet, sing-songy melody reminds me quite a lot of the best bits from Olly's first two singles "Please Don't Let Me Go" and "Thinking Of Me." The girls each have their own distinct personality which they seem to be showcasing in all of their promotional materials. Counted among the bands' inspirations - All Saints, The Bangles, Lily Allen, No Doubt...I hear all of these acts in the first 30 seconds of "Messed Up" and I want to hear/see more from these girls right away. To get more of sense of what these lovely and talented ladies have to offer, download their buzz single, "Lazy Bones" on UK iTunes HERE (listen to the track HERE). I'm quite feeling their vocal harmonies on this song. HOT! I think I might have "The Scarletz" fever!
"Messed Up" will be available to download in early 2011. In the meantime, listen to a few new tracks and watch the promo video for the new single. Both of these should nicely tide you over until we get more Scarletz.
