    It reminds me of Dove by Moony.

    Does nothing for me and god knows I love a dead-eyed disco doll singing laconic platitudes.

    It just builds and builds but it never really gets there.

    Definitely! I see this as a I Believe In You/This Is What You Came Here For/Rockabye style upbeat smash that keeps giving through the festive period.

    A clever tactic to be honest, as it’s great to have an alternative to the slew of Christmas music that’s about to impact imminently.

    It’s a great comeback, and you can somehow see it managing to appeal to most demographics - from 8 year old girls to 70 year old women.

    Always. It's just that there was a long period around the time Moopy started where there was a lot of really awful pop music. We are now in vastly better times.

    Very intrigued about the album now, when did she become the most exciting thing about pop in 2019?

    I saw a clip on Instagram of the bass being "laid down" (as they say in the studio trade) - seriously cool.

    The Sharon Stone moment in that performance. :D She looks infinitely more confident with her 'I don't give a shit' vibe than she used to.

    Some of the choreo in that performance made me do a gay squeal. Living. What a song/moment.

    I'm going to be mightily pissed off if this isn't a global smash

    This sounds even better after a few listens (that BASSLINE) and it actually *commits* to a sound rather than just being a safe, faceless bet to fit on any spotify playlist.

    Poor Issac Carew. It's going to awkward around his house for a bit.

    LOVE this song. The bassline is a lot of fun and the lyrics are great to sing with.

    The thing I like the most about her is she just delivers solid fucking tunes without any of the gimmicks. I'm so fucking sick of overplayed pop stars who are all hype and no tunes. It's good to have that reliability again. I feel like it's practically non-existent these days.

    I seem to remember being convinced she wasn't getting any traction and was heading for flopdom.

    And being wilfully excluded by her music. I don't know if the music changed, the marketing or whatever. Or perhaps just my perception.

    This is a really monumental pop song. I'm quite obsessed.

    Yup. Officially obsessed with "Don't Start Now". The Bridge is incredible.

    another performance.



    she's too awkward for the direction they're/she's pushing her(self) in. her physicality is too adolescent and clumsy for this sexy shit and the tongue licking has to stop. apart from that she looks great and i'm on board with the song after a bit of resistance (i simply hate those guitar licks in the verses in contemporary music). the best part is obviously the last 10 seconds - there's an extended version which gives them a bit more life.

    where does one hear this?

    I hate her styling in that new performance and it doesn't match the EMAs perf but still she's raised her game pretty significantly on stage, so good for her!

    Dance Monkey. Oh I'm sure it will pass soon. It's ONLY been no.1 in 30 countries and spent 8 weeks at no.1.

    Album title announced - "Future Nostalgia". Revealed on Instagram via her new tattoo. How VERY 2019.

    Not keen myself but so what? Just a title innit?

    I think she did fine in that performance. She's definitely going in the right direction I think.

    I like it, in a strong 7 kind of way. Hopefully it'll grow.
