New Music Friday: Mollie King at the top, boyband pointlessness at the bottom, various songs in between

Song of the week:
Mollie King — ‘Hair Down’

Wrongs of the week:
Why Don’t We — ‘These Girls’
In Real Life — ‘Eyes Closed’

Boybands are amazing. Boybands are important. Boybands are necessary. None of those three facts excuse what’s on offer this week — the latest effort from Why Don’t We and the first release from In Real Life, the boyband who’ve come about as a result of US show Boy Band. A good reminder that for every One Direction shifting the parameters of boybandism there have always been a dozen opportunistic, will-this-do creations that undo any good work done by the better boybands, justifying and reinforcing the scepticism with which boybands are generally regarded. In Real Life’s ‘Eyes Closed’ is particularly egregious when you take into account the resources on offer. OH WELL!!!

Additional notes:

  • ‘Already There’, the new song from ARY, is an all-out triumph which, along with Ingrid‘s ‘1234’, presents alternate-universe ideas of what a Mollie King solo career might have sounded like.
  • NONONO‘s ‘Masterpiece’ is strange and wonderful.
  • It’s nice to have Paloma Faith back isn’t it?
  • Ditto Jessie Ware.
  • The fizz has pretty much gone out of Galantis these days which is a sad but not irreversible scenario.
