New Music: Little Mix - 'Black Magic' (new single)...

Sweet & sugary 80s pop...
Little Mix's retro new single 'Black Magic' has taken a leak today. 

The uplifting tune is very 80s, very girly and has that cookie cutter pop sound in the sugary sense. Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' comes to mind on first listen. The chanting is what identifies the song as a Little Mix single. Seems like they are chasing international success, which is why they have opted for the safe route and went for a more commercial lead single.
 'Black Magic' is cute but a bit too teeny bopper for my tastes. With a super catchy chorus, this was simply made for the radio and it's very summer efficient. I think it will do well in the UK. Listen to it here.
