Album Review

Less sculpted than Steps, not as gaudy as Destiny's Child, and, if you can believe it, far more of an awkward, provocative outfit than just about any logical peer, the Sugababes didn't so much usher in the suffused post-millennium market for myopic pop as give it a much-needed kiss of nubile soul. Clearly 16-year-olds Keisha Buchanan, Siobhan Donaghy, and Mutya Buena have been weaned on Madonna and Aaliyah records, taking from them their feminist assurance and passion, but they remind us of a valuable lesson — if you're going to hew melodious, structurally accessible songs out of cold dub and rock, it really helps to use actual feeling and sincerity, and hang on to every shaky personal trait that got you there in the first place. From the Reebok Matterhorn-rumble of "Overload" to the petal-plucking Bangles cheval glass of "Soul Sound" and on to the nocturnal, string-doused pop-wonderland-with-trenchant-garage-middle-bit that's "Run for Cover," the jitters of youth are here though tempered by shrewd ambition and a clever and unpredictable production aesthetic. As alarmingly undeveloped LPs go, One Touch is everything a post-Spice Girls teen pop debut should be — discreet, adolescent, and as unstudied as a late-night phone call about boys.

A stunning debut

I recall buying the One Touch album on the strength of Run For Cover, a song I thought was one of the best pop songs of it’s time (and still do). I didn’t immediately like the album and put it aside for sometime. Occasionally I would give it another whirl and eventually found it to be a stunning record. What surprised me was the quality of this record from three girls who were so young at the time of recording it. Okay, they were in the hands of excellent producers (Cameron McVey, Jony Rockstar and Matt Rowe) who managed to merge soulful pop songs with funky beats not usually found on pop records at this time. The girl’s outstanding harmonies (particularly on Soul Sound, Look At Me and Same Old Story) indicated a maturity beyond their years and their moody demeanour (in the videos for Overload and Run for Cover) was a breath of fresh air in a post Spice Girls pop world. Every song on the album is strong, with the exception of New Year, which happened to be their second single – an odd choice in my opinion when there are so many other great songs to choose from.

Multi-ethnic U.K. trio Sugababes jumped aboard the teen pop bandwagon prior to the new millennium and exuded their own sassy demeanor without the frivolity of most mainstream acts. Siobhan Donaghy, Keisha Buchanan, and Mutya Buena were barely in their teens when they formed in 1998, sharing a liking of garage, hip-hop, and dance music. Initially, Sugababes were three friends who enjoyed singing along to the radio. Buchanan and Buena had been pals since primary school, and a chance meeting with Donaghy...
