While all the girl-band attention is focussed on the UK at the moment, what with The Saturdays, Girls Aloud and Sugababes all on the verge of releasing new albums, it could be very easy to overlook another girlband who we think is totally delicious… It’s Germany’s Monrose. Borne of that country’s ‘Popstars’, Monrose first hit the charts in their homeland in 2006 with their debut single ‘Shame’. Since then, they’ve gone on to release three albums, the most recent of which ‘I Am’ hit stores in Germany on Friday. Their latest long player features the top ten German release ‘Strike The Match’ and this – the second single ‘Hit ‘N’ Run’. The video is filled with lights, disco balls, roller skates, choreography – even the infamous ‘running man’ dance makes an appearance. They have the looks, they have the sound… Now, if we could only convince Warner Music globally that Monrose’s material was strong enough to take on the rest of the pOp world. The good news, however, is that Aussie fans CAN get some of the band’s previous material on iTunes, including their amazing singles ‘Just Like That’ and ‘Hot Summer’.
