New singer out of the UK...
Maybe the next to big big.. who knows...
This is the debut video - directed by Paul Vick
a) are her
b) know her
c) represent her in some form
and ask what people think?
I don't understand why people go in for this "next big thing" gibberish and give the impression they're talking about someone they've never met. Why not just be open about your intentions?
PS - she's alright. Not quite in the Whitehouse or Duffy category voicewise, and to be honest I'm not sure the song's strong enough, but she can clearly sing pretty well.
it's about building 'blog buzz'
But it's so damn transparent.
I think forum users are increasingly marketing-savvy and I'm just not convinced that these tactics work anymore. Maybe they do on forums more orientated toward 13/14/15-year olds but certainly not on a site like DiS.
I don't think it was sarcastic or ironic.
The quotation marks are scornful of the words within and the original post in any case.
It's fairly insulting to the rest of the readers to come on here, fire off misleading PR and expect people to eat it. Any self-interest should be disclosed.
Although I'm not sure what the word is either. But I knew you were being scornful rather than endorsing it.
Florence and the Machine
But I will have a nose at Ms. Golbey also. :)
What did you think ?
duffy is pretty fit
Ok I know her - but I wasnt trying to promote more get valid opinions.
Is she's crap, I'd tell you....
I am a music fan first and foremost..
I've worked on forums over the net for 6 years. - I have never endorsed spam.
How do you edit your posts on this thing !?
Welcome to the wonderful world of accidentally making a tit of yourself.
We've all been there my friend - mainly complaining about other people's spelling and grammar only to go and fuck it up yourself...
I'll get in touch with a moderator!
This was not the plan!!!
No edit feature for a non touch typist that tries to touch type is lethal!
Just wondered if people thought she was comparable... or even better.
The track is not your standard affair for a start.. its deeper - not meant to be poppy, meant to be a grower - mood music.
Your UK females have all jumped on the Mark Ronson bandwaggon.
Madonna has jumped on the Neptunes / Timbaland bandwagoon.. none of this stuff has longevity.
It really doesnt.
"Your UK females".
I can't quite put my finger on it.
Apologies - I wasnt meaning the posters on this forum... which by the way I am liking.
I meant whats pop right now and selling.
I don't give a fuck if you have, 'worked on forums over the net for 6 years.' This just sounds like an excerpt from a really shitty résumé.
I am trying to edit it...
I can do know more than that...
I work on and help out with one of the worlds largest music sites. Its not even on my resume.
I am mailed the moderator and am looking for this thread to be edited accordingly.
Once again - sorry.
They've hammered the whole soul pop thing to death now surely?
But its not a fad that needs to go...
Its music for all occasions.
You can play a soulful pop record when you wake up, when you are in the car, at home bored, at a party and then at a bar or mainsteam club.
You cant do that with most other genres.
I dont think this is going anywhere for a while.
