Little MixGet Weird

It’s 2015, people. Pop fans still pining for Girls Aloud need to stop tweeting Nadine Coyle and fully embrace the UK’s new reigning girlband. Since being formed on The X Factor four years ago, Little Mix have delivered a string of mostly brilliant singles including DNA and Move, sung way better than most pop groups ever have, and proven they have first-rate taste by covering RuPaul’s Sissy That Walk at a recent gay gig. This third album finds Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie swapping the sleek R&B of 2013’s Salute for unapologetic pop: Get Weird even has tracks called OMG and A.D.I.D.A.S. Though Whitney-channelling lead single Black Magic has become one of the year’s biggest hits, it doesn’t overshadow the rest of the album. Love Me Like You is an infectious 60s-influenced gem, Grown mixes sassy lyrics with catchy sax breakdowns, Secret Love Song teams the girls with Jason Derulo for a shamelessly melodramatic ballad, and Weird People sounds like the theme tune to a ludicrous 80s movie-musical. In fact, most of Get Weird is so strong that you’d probably call yourself a “Mixer” like their hardcore fans, if it weren’t for the risk of being confused with a bottle of club soda.
