You remember GRL, right? The US girl group that hit the big time with their smash ‘Ugly Heart’?
You might also recall that shortly after hitting the big time with ‘Ugly Heart’ (the original ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ and a No.2 hit here in Australia) that bandmember Simone Battle died suddenly.
A few years under the bridge and the band is back again. Original members Lauren Bennett and Natasha Slayton are still part of the line-up, but they’re joined by new member Jazzy Mejia. They’re now a trio.
New single ‘Are We Good’ is still pop, but it’s infused with more R&B and dub elements than their previous offerings.
Whether they’ve done that to differentiate themselves from the offerings of other girl groups of the moment like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix is unclear.
But what is clear is that the girls are determined to build on their previous chart successes with this new chapter.
