Mutya Keisha Siobhan - Flatline

It has been almost a year since fans and public have heard the announcement that the iconic, original Sugababes were getting back together known as Mutya Keisha Siobhan. The knowledge of their return has blown up headlines letting the United Kingdom and the rest of the world know that these girls are back, with a promise to restore faith and perfection in Pop Music.

During the arduously long wait, we have been gifted with some treats that have tided us over until we heard their first single. All diverse and possibly showcasing their talent of creative diversity, an a capella of 'Boys', a feature on a remix of Phoenix's 'Entertainment' and the iconic interpolation of Kendrick Lemar's 'Swimming Pools', 'Lay Down in Swimming Pools' were 'released' on the net to show everyone what to expect from the legendary original Sugababes; each with many articles, posts and tweets of praise. The public were ready to have Mutya Keisha Siobhan in full force.

On July 4th at 2PM (BST), the girls unleashed their highly anticipated first single 'Flatline' to eager fans and a very excited public on their Soundcloud which has exploded everywhere online since. Multiple blogs, websites and artists have shared their admiration for their triumphant return with 'Flatline'.

Flatline is written by Mutya Keisha Siobhan and produced by the unique, cool Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) who has recently been praised for his work with Solange Knowles on her latest release 'True'. Flatline is a beautiful pop song that describes a relationship that is slowly but surely dying and the hope that their 'flatline' in love will be repaired by a 'wave'.

The production itself provides a slick, fresh sound and from its originality, does not sound like anything that's in the charts. You can hear the vibe of an 80's pop influence and a beat that creates the framework for an anthem and their vocals are incredibly immense.

Like an nod to their first single 'Overload' as Sugbabes back in 2000, Siobhan starts the song off, catapulting herself and the legendary girls back to the 'scene and in just a line of lyrics sung, reclaiming back the throne as the UK's best girl group of all time. In each of their own way, Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan lay down some serious vocals on this song which showcases their individual, unique voices that fans have been in love with for over a decade now.

Lyrically, the song is one of the best any incarnation of the Sugababes has ever been able to conjure, and shows that Mutya Keisha Siobhan are completely in control of their music and choose to bring a sound that represents themselves in this decade which has once again, will be completely different to anything we have heard from the girls in the past.

This week, the girls will be collaborating with the creative likes of KT Auleta in Los Angeles & New York to film the music video. Judging from the song and work of KT Auleta, this single is looking to be the biggest of 2013 and the biggest 'comeback' we have ever seen.

Flatline will definitely see a blast of Mutya Keisha Siobhan in all music markets and reaffirm their grip on blessing the world in releasing captivating, fresh and exciting music. Do yourself a favour and introduce yourself to the future of pop music and embrace Mutya Keisha Siobhan's first single, Flatline.

    1. Thank you darl, changed it STRAIGHT away :-)

  2. Wow Blayke, paving the way for new streams of creativity, you never cease to amaze me, hmm now something i leanrned tonight which may be of some interest was the story about Plato's cave have you heard of it? called the Allegory of the cave.. now the gist of what he was saying was a story about these prisoners chained in this cave and they could not turn their heads or see anything other then shadows of puppets on a wall and they had a very limited view of reality, conversation they may have about something like a book, is actually just a shadow of a book and not the more comprehensive meaning of the book, and then they get unchained and are able to look around and suddenly realise that their ideas of what something meant was a limited view of that thing, and I think what he was saying was that sometimes we just take ideas as what other people think those things are without investigating stuff for ourselves, and finding s deeper more meningful truth in things, anyway heres a link for oyu to read the story your self and see what you make of it, after all what I have just explained could just be the shadow of what is real..

Because of Her, We Can: A NAIDOC 2018 Reflection

BECAUSE OF HER, WE CAN! Today is the beginning of NAIDOC Week for 2018. The theme thisvyear, "Because of her, we can!" is one that shines a light on the beauty, strength and grace of our women. As Aboriginal people, we always know the power that our women have and their significance they have always had for our lives and the role they continue to play. The NAIDOC Committee also understand that Sadly, Aboriginal women’s role in our cultural, social andpolitical survival has often been invisible, unsung or diminished. For at least 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried our dreaming stories, song lines, languages and knowledge that have kept our culture strong and enriched us as the oldest continuing culture on the planet. For me, I was born blessed into a family that was characterised with the leadership of women. My Nan and my best friend, Maureen Smith and her sister Fay Brown, led our family to uphold and pass down the values tha

The Sacred Three (L-R): Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena & Keisha Buchanan It’s been a while since I have written a blog post, or even looked at my blog for that matter. What made me decide to re-visit writing again was my first love of music; Mutya Keisha Siobhan . If you’re reading this from either my Facebook or Twitter – you would know that I at least talk about this trio every week about how incredible/talented/beautiful they are. Well I wanted to write down my personal thoughts about them, which will hopefully answer some ambiguity around why I like them so much. Fresh Faced in 2000 as 'Sugababes' I have been a fan of Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan since I was eight years old in 2000, a time when they were establishing their careers under the name of Sugababes to which these girls brought about critical/credible acclaim, international success and securing the legacy for forever being known as; the original Sugababes. Considering the lack of access to mu

MUSIC REVIEW: The Sapphires

SAPPHIRES SOUNDTRACK: AN AUSSIE GEM When holding The Sapphires: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack in my hands tonight I felt a surge of pure Motown energy, this being from all the bits and pieces of previews of this upcoming Australian movie which boasts an exquisite array of home-grown talent. The Soundtrack, completely delivers in the same fashion.   The album has Australian pop sweetheart Jessica Mauboy leading 7 of the 16 tracks, which includes her new single 'Gotcha', which is just a taster of the classic, smooth sounds of 'The Sapphires'.  If Miss Mauboy wasn't enough talent on one CD, try adding classic R&B legends Sam & Dave with the sassy trio, The Emotions with a twist of rock from Creedence Clearwater Revival completed with more wholesome Australian talent from Lou Bennett, Juanita Tippens, Jade Macrae and talent show 'The Voice''s favourite, Darren Pericival. If you're not impressed, you're on the wrong page!
