Hipple Street - Naturally In Hamony
Hipple Street should really be a household name by now. If that sentence doesn't spell out the Dublin quartet's ultra-mainstream musical leanings, then nothing else will; making pop music that embodies more sunshine than KC, his band and their respective sunbeds all together, their second single Naturally In Harmony comes hot on the heels of Irish top thirty hit 'Inspector Rita'. Sounding like a cross between the theme tune to a '70s US sitcom and the Jackson 5, Naturally In Harmony is a brilliantly bouncy little pop song that strongly suggests that this is a band who have raided their parents' golden-era-of-pop record collections. True Adore is a less likeable offering that recalls an amalgam of several terrible mid-'90s boybands (singer Neil Byrne's quasi-falsetto doesn't help), but the Hipplers redeem themselves with the semi-slick seventies soul of piano-pop ballad One Day. This is a single that's cheesier than a slice of Dairylea; but with the LJB (leather jacket brigade) growing in number daily, it's fantastic to see a band who are dancing to the beat of their own drum - and doing it with arms aloft and sappy grins, to boot.
