    The Saturdays

    Pop

    The first major girl band to be launched in the U.K. after a multi-year drought, five-piece pop group the Saturdays boasted a photogenic appearance and electro-pop sound, leading to their labeling by some critics as the new Girls Aloud. Formed in 2007 through auditions that were held by a management company hoping to revive the flagging pop market, all five members had previous performing experience. Una Healy started singing in a rock band and later recorded her own solo album, which she showcased around bars and clubs in her native Ireland. Vanessa White attended the prestigious Sylvia Young Theatre School and appeared in the West End production of The Lion King. Mollie King had been part of girl band Fallen Angels, who made it through to the boot camp stages of ITV's The X Factor, while the two most recognizable members, Frankie Sanford and Rochelle Wiseman, were previously in teen pop band S Club Juniors, who scored six Top Ten hits in the early noughties. The band signed to an offshoot of Polydor Records, Fascination, the home of Girls Aloud, whom they later supported on the Tangled Up tour. Their first single, "If This Is Love," sampled Yazoo's "Situation" and reached number eight in the U.K. charts. Their self-titled debut album then appeared at the end of 2008. The group followed up with the mini-album Headlines!, led by the single "Missing You," in 2010. the Saturdays spent the bulk of the first part of 2011 working on their third album. The first single from the record, "My Heart Takes Over," was released in September, with the full-length On Your Radarappearing in November.

    Kerli

    Pop

    If 2012 was the year electronic music went mainstream, 2013 will be the year songwriting infused with the spirit of ‘EDM’ grabs hold of the globe. Few other artists working today are better positioned to ride the wave of European inspired dance anthems lighting up radio charts and iTunes worldwide than Estonian-born, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Kerli. 
    Well before electronic dance music features graced the pages of mainstream magazines in 2012, the 25-year old fashion forward singer was riding a wave of popularity in the U.S. with her #1 Billboard Dance Club Songs chart smash, “Army Of Love,” in late 2010 and early 2011. The visually rich video for the track, shot in her native country, has racked up nearly 3.5 million views so far on You Tube and laid the blueprint for a synth-soaked sound that has concurrently swept America recently (and has brought Kerli a new fervent fan base grafted on top of her existent fans). 

    The song proved a fitting bridge for a truly visionary presence on the trendsetting side of pop between Kerli’s 2008 debut album for Island Def Jam, Love Is Dead, and her new set for the label, 2013’s Utopia. 

    The much anticipated Island Def Jam offering, Utopia, showcases Kerli’s gift for sincere songwriting, which fans of Demi Lovato know well (the artist, born Kerli Kõiv, co-wrote Lovato’s platinum-selling “Skyscraper,” which won an MTV VMA in September of 2012 for ‘Best Video With A Message’).
