Consider Yourself Lucky

8 Nov

 

A long steady jangle of a tambourine sets the stage for Lucky Soul’s “Lips are Unhappy” an infectious dance, brit pop tune that will take listeners back to the hey day of girl groups in the 1960’s like the Shangri-las.

But make no mistake. This is not a girl group.

One of these things is not like the other.

Lead singer Ali Howard(the only female in the six member band) channels Mary Weiss as she cutely encourages listeners to “Shake” and “Shimmy,” and you will want to follow her lead.

“Lips are Unhappy” is a fun retro inspired piece that will instantly make you grab a hairbrush, and prance merrily around your house lip synching your heart out. It’s a song that makes you feel good, with it’s happy, upbeat tempo, even though the content of the song is about heart break.

“Pretending that everything’s cool/when I’m 27 shades of blue”. Quite a deep lyric hidden amidst punchy beats and fresh vocals from Howard and her backup band.

If you’re looking for a one stop ridiculously good dance tune, check out Lucky Soul and turn the volume on this track up to maximum for maximum enjoyment!

The Lucky soul is a six piece pop band from Greenwich, United Kingdom.

    I hadn’t heard of this group before, but I really enjoyed this song. As you pointed out there was a nice contrast between the lyrical content and the music. I’m not sure too many people could resist moving around at least a little when she tells us to “shimmy” and “shake”.

    Perhaps you may like The Jezabels…
