I'm not sure what to make of the latest budding major label pop act from the UK, Sunday Girl (Blondie reference?). Her (their?) debut single "Four Floors" is certainly a catchy slice of electro-pop, which I've been playing for the last few days. There's an edge to the production that makes the song seem greater than the sum of its parts, and her voice reminds of Little Boots. And of course, Ellie Goulding comparisons are inevitable. The video makes it clear what sort of audience the label wants to pander to. The cynic in me just has to wonder if this is more than your average production-line pop. Nah I'm just being a prick about it. Don't overthink, self.
To sum it up, not amazing but highly listenable pop tune. Judging by the way things go across the pond, I assume this is just a "buzz single", and a "big" tune will come along soon. It's too early to say, but for now, count me in.
An EP is available on iTunes for folks in the UK, including this very bloggable Diplo remix.

And here's the quite fashionable video:
They're so meant for each other, you see. BOTH ARE OBSESSED WITH THEIR HAIR.
