The Cheeky Girls – Take Your Shoes Off

Take your shoo-sies off, woo! Ah, the Cheeky Girls are back and seemingly reprogrammed. Objective: prove that the Cheeky Song was merely a statement of intent, that chart domination is inevitable. This new song is the best synth pop song in a very long time, it sounds like the Silicon Teens with its melancholy synth beat tune and otherworldly vocodor-ised vocals. There is a sense of sadness and cool detachment at the core of this track, an acceptance that pop stardom won’t last, of built in obsoleteness. Do androids dream of the Cheeky Girls? I think so.
