Inspired by Northern Soul, Stax and Neo-Soul, this 9-piece Berlin-based outfit brings back the invigorating vibe of 60s girl groups. Having emerged from a former band called The Floorettes, their new iteration is fronted by British Jess and German Laura and Katharina. With a vocal power remindful of the soulful warmth of Carole King and Laura Nyro, they debuted with “Are You For Real” in 2019.
Celebrating what truly matters in life, namely being a good person, their new single embraces the classic soul sound of the 60s. Highlighting the fiery, powerhouse vocals of Jess Roberts, it’s the groovy melody, bursting with lavish percussion, bountiful brass and a resplendent electric guitar solo, that turns this opulent soul thing into a true nostalgic and extravagant, soul-infused experience.
Born in Toronto into a musical family, this gifted Canadian singer and songwriter started singing at the age of three, performing with her dad Alessandro Battaglia. At 9 years young she performed Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” on Toronto’s Breakfast Television which went viral. She’s also a golden buzzer winner on season 15 of America’s Got Talent. As an actress she debuts in “Three Pines” on Amazon Prime Video.
Lyrically chronicling the pain and hurt she encountered in her school years, her debut single highlights the need to put an end to negativity from our past and turn it into something positive. With an ascending melody of crisp piano and imposing drums reaching a crescendo in the infectious chorus, it’s her slightly country-esque, soaring vocals that turn this pop debut into an extraordinary jam.
