Starlight - Sophie Ellis-Bextor (2011)

Man, oh, man, haven't done this type of post in a looong while....

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has made it excruciatingly hard for me to keep up with her. She says she's coming out with an album, and then nada for a good solid year with a sprinkle of "made you looks" and some Freemasons collabs. Now it seems that Make A Scene, Bextor's fourth album, gets more official by the day. I mean, there is an official album cover wandering about, it has a release date of June 6th, oh, and two new songs leaked a few weeks back. One of them "Starlight",
is very good. So good in fact that it deserves to be talked about in this sort of fashion.

SEB always makes quite a funky good dance tune and the Richard X produced, "Starlight" goes into a sleek 80's New Wave groove. Love its sort of grimy, seedy and jammed packed synth dance sound (think Madonna's "Get Together"). Considering this is the fifth single (!) from Make A Scene, so far, this one is my favorites from the lot of singles that were scattered around last year, and it's getting me even more anxious for the full set of Scene. So glad that there are some pop stars out there, like Miss Bextor, making some great dance ditties for the summer!
