Swedish pop duo Straight Up! have got a brand new single all ready for release. It comes a year or so after 2011′s immense ‘Show The World Tonight‘ – which ended up as one of our favourite songs of last year.
‘Family’ is the name of the new song. Released on June 1st and with a video to follow a week later on June 8th. However, today the boys uploaded a behind-the-scenes featurette, which has a hefty minute and forty seconds of ‘Family’ streaming as a preview.
Like ‘Show The World Tonight’, ‘Family’ sounds like another defiant call to arms, set to the tone of an uplifting dance beat. Bless their little cotton socks – not only do the Straight Up! chaps have a worthy message they want to spread, they also manage to do so without compromising on the quality of the pop. If you like your dancepop to be a little on the pink side, then you should enjoy ‘Family’. We most certainly do – on both counts.
