Words: Saam Das
Re-e-wind about eighteen months and a mysterious Manchester band emerged from the ether. They were electro-pop outfit Swiss Lips. And they impressed. So much so that they would earn themselves a four album deal from Sony Epic in next to no time. Thanks to the likes of 'U Got The Power', which is now getting a well deserved single release.
'U Got The Power' has seen recent BBC Radio 1 play, and looks set to make its way up the UK singles chart when it comes out at the end of April. And not just because it's somewhat reminiscent of the 5ive classic 'Got The Feelin', both lyrically and in terms of its good vibes.
If the new single doesn't quite dominate the charts, I strongly suspect that the party-pop anthem 'Grow' will make up for lost time. For the time being though, enjoy the video to 'U Got The Power' below, which mashes up appropriately dance-heavy clips from eighties films 'Beat Street' and 'Breakin'.
