They always say you don't have to win The X Factor to be successful. One Direction came third, JLS did alright as runners-up and Johnny Robinson...um...yeah. ANYWAY last year Reggie 'N' Bollie just lost out on that telly talent show crown to Louisa Johnson; but they're the first of the series 12 lot to release an original song.
Yup - after impressing everyone with their infectious energy and essentially making us feel like it was summer as we froze our balls off last winter, Reggie 'N' Bollie are back with their debut single 'New Girl.'
Oh, and it's got summer smash written all over it mate.
We've always been of the belief that the good old steel drum is the most underused instrument in pop, so thank CHRIST these boys are set to serve us the summer op we deserve. You might've already heard a bit of it in the new Littlewoods ad *and* it apparently comes complete with choreography set to SWEEP THE NATION.

cocktail mocktail and pretend you're on a bouncy castle or something. Ladies and gents, your song of summer 2016 is here:
Thoughts on that, then? Excited to hear the whole thing? Tweet us over @sugarscape after you've watched the vid below, please and ta very much.
