Hi! I'm Melly. I'm a dreamer, and find myself seeking creativity- whether it is crafting my own ideas or finding other amazing things people have done. This blog is to share these things.
I find it appropriate that my Music Monday is rather late, as I just remembered right when I was going to go to bed that I wanted to write this one up. I guess it’s also kind of late to be sharing this group as music I love, because I have for years. Most people just disregard them though, because of what they remember in the ’90s.
I advise you not to.
They’re older. They can grow beards. And have babies. And they do. Have babies. And grow facial hair.
But what I find most remarkable about this group is that they have grown, musically. They didn’t just stick to that pop music they liked to make when they were kids. They didn’t stick to the transition into a deeper sounding alternative rock they did with This Time Around. Even through the next handful of albums, their music consistently progressed, but kept the same harmonies that make them so incredible to listen to. They basically stayed true to themselves, and to what they’re feeling, and that’s awesome.
You probably remember the ambiguously gendered trio you saw everywhere if you were alive or listening to the radio in 1997, and maybe you don’t want to forgive them for that. I liked the song, and I still don’t think it’s that bad. But for the rest of the world, you really shouldn’t hold a grudge. It isn’t healthy. And you know what? You’ll probably like this new thing going on. Their voices are solid, their latest record entitled Shout it Out has wonderful oldies/motown influences, and you’re just going to want to dance in general when you hear it.
You know what, check out this track:
