The Gossip - Listen Up (Single)

A brand new re-release from a band that I've heard far too much about. This is mundane effort, empty and uneventful . "1, 2 ,3 take it from me, 3, 4 so much trouble in store 4, 5 get it right,the first time" sings Beth Ditto seemingly not realising how awful the lyrics she is singing are. The instrumentation is unadventurous and they seem to rely to much on Ditto's strong voice which is undoubtedly impressive. They just don't have the quality of songs and if I'm honest I don't think they have the talent to write anything better than or on par with Standing In The Way Of Control. I won't be at all surprised to see them fade into obscurity once the hype has died down.
