Not, this is not a clickbait drill. We repeat, this is not a clickbait drill.
Before we say anything, take it all in. Draw the curtains, light a candle and hit play. Travel backwards to a time when you wore only army jackets and wide leg pants.
We do want you to make up your own minds, but also we want you to know that it might be the greatest return to pop ever witnessed on the face of planet earth. OK, cool, now there are no stakes, here you go:
All Saints are the band that were often forgotten in the girl group boom. As the Spice Girls stomped about, they were producing material for The Beach, and covering the Red Hot Chili Peppers. If any of their tracks were cast into the current climate you'd barely notice they'd aged at all, which isn't something you can say about, well, much pop music. It isn't timeless in quality, necessarily, but construction.
This latest track was written by Shaznay (THE BEST) and is loosely based on Nicole Appleton and Liam Gallagher's break-up, specifically a phone call shared by the two band members when it was revealed that Gallagher had cheated, and was expecting a child with an American journalist.Their usual 'Ibiza Chill' vibe has been upgraded to something a little jazzier, and the subject matter certainly doesn't seem like anything other than a 'positive change'. No rage was written into here. As Harriet Gibson writes for The Guardian, "it's a shrug of a shoulders, a nail polish emoji. It's All Saints".
