Stooshe: Taking over London with the lights on

SING ALONG: Stooshe perform on the main stage at Birmingham Gay Pride 2013 (PA)

GIRL BAND Stooshe have given fans a peek into what to expect from their forthcoming debut album London with the Lights On.

In an exclusive interview with Mail Online, the London trio, Karis Anderson, Courtney Rumbold, Alexandra Buggs, spoke about the inspiration behind each track.

Anderson explained that song See Me Like This was about the three girls having each other's backs.

She said: 'It's about when you admit to yourself that you have that crazy side and you're telling your partner - you're kind of threatening them a bit.

Stooshe credited their close friendship for their success, and already established as the hottest new girl group, the girls have clocked up two top five singles with Love Me and Gold-certified Black Heart, which has sold over 475,000 copies and continues to maintain a Top 40 chart position months after release.

The band achieved another milestone when they were nominated at last year’s MOBO’s for Best Newcomer and Best British Single with Black Heart.

However, their third single cover of TLC’s Waterfalls, stalled in the charts, which they admitted was a label (Warner Music) choice and prompted the girls to take a short break away from the industry to “rework their album.”

Now back, the band is a high after recent single Slip received a positive reaction from fans.

Their long-awaited debut album London with the Lights On was released on May 27, and debuted at number eight in the charts.

The trio expressed their excitement on the their website, and said: “We have worked so hard to get here, please spread the word and buy it!”

Alexandra told Mail Online: “We say our music is our baby, that's our relationship and that's what keeps us happy and content.”
