UK singer @NickiFrenchie stirs up quite an anthem with “Raise Your Voice”

NICKI FRENCH, “Raise Your Voice” 

“Raise Your Voice” is a jubilant new anthem that indeed will have you singing along in no time, fists clenched in the air.  UK singer Nicki French follows up songs like “On Your Marks, Get Set, Go Away” and “Teardrops On The Disco Floor” (which like “Voice”, is also co-penned by the esteemed Charlie Mason) with another engaging and well-sung release that will happily lead you to the dance floor in various remixes by Matt Pop – the extended club mix – Ricardo Autobahn, and Sakgra for those of you who can’t get enough.

Nicki French (@nickifrenchie) flourishes in the 80’s inspiration of empowering “On Your Marks, Get Set, Go Away”

NICKI FRENCH, “On Your Marks, Get Set, Go Away”

Last year Nicki French sang about how she would toss a guy out of a dance club and leave her “Teardrops On The Disco Floor”.  This year it’s ready – steady – go away!  The singer best known for her high energy 90’s cover smash of “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” takes matters into her own hands and empowers all of us to do the same in “On Your Marks, Get Set, Go Away”.  Like “Teardrops”, “On Your Marks” is a dance floor delight, taking a huge lot of 80’s inspiration and translating it for today’s dance clubs.  30 years ago, a song like “On Your Marks” would be sung by Kylie Minogue and fit snugly into the Stock-Aitken-Waterman music factory of the day.  While the song is fluid enough and does not let up, it is an homage to that era, and just for fun, a remixer or two (I’m humbly suggesting Matt Pop 😉 ) perhaps could take that idea and run with it even more…  Otherwise, listeners and club goers, face those relationship demons and just make ’em go away!!

Shining Star: @NickiFrenchie brings back happy times with “Teardrops (On The Disco Floor)”

NICKI FRENCH, “Teardrops (On The Disco Floor)”

Disco music can make all the mini-comebacks in various shapes and forms, and if it’s done ever so right the new songs will endure too!  Though she had hits in her native UK and other countries outside of North America throughout the 90’s and represented the UK at Eurovision in 2000, Nicki French is still best known for her high energy pop cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in 1995, which was a Top 5 hit most everywhere.  “Teardrops (On The Disco Floor)” is flat out disco with an arrangement plucked right out of 1978 and made contemporary once again, along with a vocal by Nicki that doesn’t hold anything back.  It’s a spirited anthem of empowerment that goes hand-in-hand with your favourite songs of that era with the highest pedigree of songwriting courtesy of Charlie Mason and friends.  So shine your brightest under the big lights and disco mirror ball and check out the video above.  Remixes are coming 🙂
