#WildCardWednesday: All Saints – ‘One Strike’

All Saints came to an abrupt end in 2001 after some sort of “jacket incident” which ultimately lead to the group’s demise, after just two albums. Then, in 2006, the group reformed and released their third (and rather good!) studio album, Studio 1, but sadly due to poor sales (which was the label’s fault, I might add!) split again.

It’s now, a decade later, that the group have reformed and are gearing up to release their fourth studio album, Red Flag.

Preceding the album, is this single, ‘One Strike’. What I love about this song, is that it just sounds like the group have never been apart and have been making their natural progressions, maturing their sound, but still keeping it pop at the core. It’s very ‘All Saints‘ but without seeming out-of-date, however this band have always had a mature, ahead-of-their-time edge to their sound.

This song has left me very excited for their new album! Are you guys just as excited as I am? Would you have chosen a different song for #WildCardWednesday today? Please share this link on your social media accounts.
