For us, it was Girls Aloud who owned the crown of the best girlband around. Now that they have decided to go their own separate ways, could The Saturdays be the girl to own that crown? Snapping closely on their heels are Little Mix, who are currently dominating the charts in the US. Time will tell, so for now let’s take a look at their new single – Gentleman.
The Saturdays sing about trying to find a gentleman in the year 2013, don’t we know the feeling only too well! But singing about them being around only in 1995 and then a husband being so ‘1999’ seems a bit strange to us, as far as lyrics go. We never really knew that 1995 was full of gents, is there something that we missed out on here? Or it may that it is just a lazy lyric to rhyme, but it doesn’t really work for us, we’re afraid, especially seeing as most of the band have settled or are settling and have indeed found their perfect gentleman, so the song doesn’t seem genuine, either.
The song doesn’t really stand out as being one of the best tracks that they’ve released. It is catchy enough in parts, but we don’t feel that the song suits them and it would’ve been better suited to and R & B band who would have injected the feisty temperament that the song requires. On the plus side, the ladies look as gorgeous as ever in the video to accompany the song and the vocals are good but they do sound definitely American and we’re not too sure why they are singing with American lilts? For us, we are rather disappointed with this offering, but this should only spur them on to bigger and better songs as time progresses, we just don’t think that the song suits them as a band.
