New band: Scarlettes

In our more realistic moments, we have to acknowledge that Girls Aloud and Sugababes are nearing the end of their "shelf life" (nb: this doesn't mean that their boobs are starting to sag, although that's inevitable, too).

What we need is a hopeful set of young replacements waiting to steal their pop crown. But, at the time of writing, there doesn't seem to be anyone willing or able to step up to the plate.

Unless you count the Saturdays, which we don't.

However, yesterday we read on the Popjustice forums stumbled across a new three-piece called Scarlettes, who may find pop ubiquity within their grasp. Here is what they look like:

Reasons why they could be big:
1) Photograph is a step-by-step illustration of how to use hair curlers.
2) Genre-smashing mix of girl band pop and dance music.
3) Have attitude of early Bananarama.

Reasons why they might flop spectacularly:
1) Photograph looks like three Primark models caught in a freak hurricane.
2) Unique dance-pop blend already perfected by Freemasons and Beyonce.
3) Have attitude of late-period Atomic Kitten.

The Scarlettes are currently "being developed", so their career could head down either one of those two routes. If you want to take an early listen, a medley of their demos is available on the Myspaces.

And here is a clip of the band singing over Eric Prydz's Pjanoo. (Warning: may result in waving of glow-in-the-dark sticks and blowing of rave whistles).
