Annie Is Feeling A Little Crazy

TITLE: “Loco”
WEB DEBUT: June 26, 2008

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: “Loco” is a bit glossier than Annie’s other Richard X-produced efforts, tempering the mid-’80s electropop feel for a smoother sound with slippery vocals that bring to mind Girls Aloud and Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Is that a complaint? Not at all; I can see this being an even more formidable summer-jam candidate than “I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me,” even. (Plus any song that has a stuttery guitar-solo outro is 100% fine by me.)

WHERE TO FIND IT: Music Is The Heart Of Our Soul. Just, uh, don’t mind the Staind song that you have to pass to get there. (Also: Popjustice has a snippet of the candy-flossed “Songs Remind Me Of You,” which is also slated to be on the album.)

    Songs Remind Me of You >>> I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me >>>>>> Loco.

    Loco is a bit too “GIRLS ALOUD” for me, which I don’t think is a bad thing but it really does sort of highlight the occasional rut Xenomania get themselves into. It’s not a dire showcase track like “Sexy!… No No No” but it’s not Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s “If You Go” either.

    (Then again, I really don’t think anything compares to that Sophie Ellis-Bextor album and I’m not going to change my mind until someone forces me to.)
