When most people come across a group such as 1 Girl Nation, it is easy to jump to conclusions about what kind of music such a group will produce, because let’s face it, they are an all-girl pop group. However if you are too quick to judge you may miss out on a really spectacular record; these ladies have a little something else that makes them special.

In terms of the sound of their album I was thoroughly pleased because even though they are operating within a well-saturated genre, the variety of voices they bring to the table and their overall passion and enthusiasm makes their record really worth listening to. Their recipe for catchy and upbeat tracks has been enhanced by sprinkling in a variation of sounds, including rap and even some dubstep!  Although I didn’t really enjoy the rap, as I felt it took away from the album rather than adding to it, I still believe that this is a solid first record.

In terms of their lyrics, you will find it hard not to sing along to this record, and the messages behind each track are well chosen and thought provoking, however it is the fun,  exciting deliverance of these messages that really drives them home.
With the huge role that the media plays in influencing society it is, in my opinion, really great to have a group of artists such as these women to be positive role models for the youth of today. Their record is a smooth and well-polished pop dance adventure that has a sound that lovers of artists such as Rihanna, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus, would be happy to dance and sing to.  Yet, within the beats are Godly messages that speak about holiness, true beauty and the vitality of living for Jesus Christ. 

This record really rises above the normality of the ‘tween’ pop scene, and delivers a unique explosion of musical fun. With a great sound and a greater message, they are a band worth listening to.

This week’s Song of the Week is definitely: “Invade”

Stay true Pikachu
