Sugababes Live Lounge pt 368

The new new new new Sugababes have scuttled off to Radio One to plug their new new single, About A Girl, with a live lounge performance.

I'll be honest here. I haven't written anything about the single before now because I think it's a rather feeble effort. The production is flaccid, the girls sound disinterested, and the chorus non-existent. It's almost as if there were other things going on in the background distracting people from the job in hand. I can't imagine what, though.

Imagine my surprise, then, when the live acoustic version (complete with harp and tabla) revealed a spritely little song with cute little flamenco touches on the hook. Well done, person who handles the arrangement, for pulling that out of the bag.

Today's performance was dubbed the "first time the new Sugababes line-up has sung together", which impressively suggests the trio didn't even bother to rehearse. Nonetheless, it would certainly explain the screechy discordance on their cover of Florence and The Machine's Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up).
