Y'all know we love a good girl band here at Sugarscape, right? And with Little Mix and Fifth Harmony already doing it for the ladies we reckon it's time for a new bunch to jump on the scene. A new bunch like, say, The Northernettes - three girls from the north ready to try their hand at all this popstar malarky. HIYA.
Now their single 'Let's Go' isn't actually out 'till this Friday (January 22nd, date fans); but since we like to get in there quick we thought we'd catch up with Georgia, Sophie May and Katie for a quick chinwag. Oh, it's all very exciting innit?
Oh hey, girls. Go on then - introduce yourselves. Give us a fact about you literally nobody else knows.
Sophie: Katie's going to hate this, I'm probably the biggest ABBA fan that you'll ever meet. I literally love Abba. I love ABBA so much.
Katie: When I was little there was a doll that was out called Tiny Tears and when I was at school I used to cry at everything, so that was my nickname at School (Tiny Tears) and I kind of buried that fact.
Georgia: Between the ages of 4 and 7, I had an imaginary pet mouse called Poppy and I genuinely believed the mouse was real and it wasn't.
We still have imaginary pets/friends/acquaintances, babes. Don't worry. What's your new single all about, then?
So our new single is called 'Let's Go.' It's fun, it's lively and in the video we all performed in our socks at one point. It's a great start for us, it's about not holding back and doing what you want to do, no matter what other people think. It's like saying 'sod it' in true northern style.
If you lot had to describe your sound in three words, they'd be...
Fresh, fun and lively.
And if you could jump on a track and collaborate with anyone, who'd it be and why? Ooh.
Sophie: Stevie Nicks.
Georgia: I would obviously say Ray Charles, but I'd quite like to have a go with Elvis for some reason. Just the way he performs is really cool. I do like Elvis, I'm not a huge fan, but I think it would be really cool.
Katie: I'd proper, proper love to do a collaboration with James Brown, it would be epic. That power and passion is explosive. Or Boy George.
We bloody love a girl band here at Sugarscape. Do you reckon we need some more girl power in the charts in 2016?
Yeah man, especially northern girl power. Girl power all the way.
So why should we all download your new single 'Let's Go' in five words, eh ladies?
Georgia: I can think of four...It is freaking cool.
Sophie: It is groovy, peachy, funky.
Katie: We have to be modest.
Georgia: It's cause we're Northern.
What d'ya make of that, then? Excited to get the track in and around your earholes later this week? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box below, please and ta very much. LOVE Y'ALL.
