I've recently started getting into Nine Muses's back catalog. They've worked extensively with my favorite producers, Sweetune, so that was the initial impetus to check them out. But now they've gone and released the spectacular Hurt Locker
and really sealed the deal for me. Hurt Locker
features one of my favorite things in pop music... that wall of sound at the end of the chorus formed by layers of intense vocals. Despite this not being a Sweetune production, it's one of their hallmarks and lends an enormous amount of power to what could have otherwise been a normal (albeit extremely catchy) dance track. If you like this, seek out Action
, which is one of their album tracks from two years ago. It's got a very similar, epic sound. Definitely one of the better girl group releases of the year.
