Hey Liam!

Wow at the Little Mix top 2! Two of my favourites on Glory Days too. F.U. proved to be a bit of a grower in the end once I knew what to expect, I'm not sure it would work as a single (plus I'm not sure it's totally radio friendly? laugh.gif) but it's a really strong album track. Touch is just a really great pop song, and I think it's actually a "cool" track to like which is surely helping it, as opposed to being something all the lads might consider a guilty pleasure like Hair or Shout Out to My Ex.

That's some pretty fantastic longevity for All Night! I read what you and Bal discussed in his EOY thread actually and I agree, it's really changed the way boybands can operate going forward, proving that a change in sound can pay off really well and maybe a little bit of trendhopping can work! laugh.gif I pray they can deliver with the next single and that their label puts it on all the Spotify playlists instantly to get it a load of exposure.

Fantastic stuff! biggrin.gif

Hi Joseph!

'F.U.' was far and away the most instant from the music we got to hear pre-album release for me and it's continued to prove it has great staying power. It's got the similar heart-warming, retro feel that 'Love Me Like You' had - a song that is easily one of my favourites from Little Mix - so I'm not surprised I've taken to it so much. I would agree that it perhaps wouldn't work as a single; I've not seen many rave reviews about it. 'Touch', on the other hand, was always an obvious single choice. It does have a 'cool' vibe about it, I agree, although I think Little Mix in general have become more and more accepted by people of pretty much all demographics. Some of the reactions 'Shout Out to My Ex' gets from even the most "lad-ish" of guys is quite beyond guilty pleasure territory! laugh.gif

Yes, 'All Night' definitely feels like it could have paved the way for boybands to experiment with different formats and sounds, which in turn makes them open to wider audiences. It's a good example of how to be influenced by current trends properly: instead of just mindlessly jumping on the bandwagon, it's clear that consideration has been taken in regards to what they stand for as artists. That way, you know you're on to something that won't have been done already by other artists on the scene and just makes said music all that more special. The Vamps seemed to have successfully shifted from the age of pre-order to the age of streaming and OA/OS with 'All Night' so I hope this only encourages them further to experiment.
