Two in a row for The Saturdays?


From DigitalSpy

We were quite taken with The Saturdays when we interviewed them a couple of months back, so we were pleased when their debut single, ‘If This Is Love’, managed to crack the top ten. Nice job Frankie, Mollie, Rochelle, Una and Vanessa…. trouble is, you’ve got to do it all over again now.

Well, here’s the good news: the group’s all-important second single had its radio premiere over the weekend and it’s actually really good. It’s called ‘Up’ and it’s a quivering, sinewy electropop track about taking a relationship to ‘The Next Level’. “This is the crossing at the main intersection,” they sing at one point, “Up is where we go from here.” It’s one of several travelling-themed lines that sound good as they play but don’t quite make sense.

Anyway, after a few spins it becomes clear than ‘Up’ is actually a stronger single than ‘If This Is Love’. Its chorus is just as infectious, but it’s edgier, the production is more interesting and it features more sirens than a particularly dramatic episode of The Bill. If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s currently streaming on the group’s MySpace page.
