Blimey. I haven’t written anything on here for such a long time. Apologies.
I felt propelled to write a little something something about this here song by the excellent Ruby Goe, not least because it mentions the 149 bus, which, as anyone who lives in North-east London or has ever had to get from London Bridge to the Shoreditch area of a night time will testify, is quite the experience. I tweeted Ruby to confirm it was the bus route she was referring to and she confirmed it all, summing up the 149 thusly; “Its the unpredictable kingsland road sat4am armageddonesque shitfest i have trouble with.” Amazing.
No, but seriously, Get On It is amazing, all chunky, clattering beats and shedloads of personality. Like all good pop, it’s a little bit racy, a little bit sassy (“he gonna leave me walking like Bambi” isn’t just a cute Disney reference) and manages to contain all the excitement of one of those blog-friendly pop rackets without forsaking an actual tune.
You can hear some more songs here.
