MP3 of the Day #160: Cha-Cha

When I reviewed London “indie-disco-pop” trio Cha-Cha‘s first single, ‘Phonographic Love,’ I was sure its power to cause spontaneous dancing couldn’t be topped, but I was wrong. With their second single, ‘The Fellowship,’ they’ve created a song SO catchy I could barely stay in my seat long enough to write this post!

A crowd favorite at their gigs, this track is heavy on the bass and the synths and has a killer hook, though I have to disagree with lead singer Blain McGuigan’s claim that he ‘ain’t no upbeat Casanova’. Put on your dancing shoes and check out out the brand new, home video-style music video for ‘The Fellowship’, “featuring a game of golf, a dog, featherdusters, a caravan, skateboards, hiding and running”:

While you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to hear it on their album (the release has been delayed from 14th March to 10th May 2010), to make up for it their label, Pop Noodle Records, is offering the song as a a free download on their website.

If you pre-order a copy of Cha-Cha’s forthcoming debut album, ‘We Are…,’ between now and 9th April 2010, it will arrive in the post by 17th April, nearly 3 weeks before its official release.  Be sure to check back soon for the TGTF review of the album.
