STRAIGHT UP - TWINK : Forget Roxette, this is Swedens hottest duo for 2010!

These very cute boys landed in my inbox the other day and I can't stop listening to it. This ode to sex takes me back to Sweden's hottest and perhaps most controversial pop act in recent years: the legendary Pay-TV. You see what makes a hot & creamy pop record is actually its delivery. Sometimes that can be felt via an amazing orchestral swirl provided by Mozart. Sometimes it can be a vocal belt provided by a diva like Barbra Streisand. Sometimes its simply the snappy lyrics and the audacity of the band to write lyrics so cutting you feel yourself clicking your heels three times whilst declaring "oh no they didnt". Str8 Up are a beautiful duo who tell it like it is. I can't convey how much I heart this electrosynth band. They delve into crevices you didnt ever dare poke at, let alone finger without the necessity of lubrication....



I am inclined to love this band. They take me back to the days of Army Of Lovers. In fact, imagine a strange hybrid of Simon Curtis and Army of Lovers and you might get a sense of what Straight Up are about. Twink is the track Christina Aguilera should have given us instead of that dirge that is Not Myself Tonight. Straight Up! Welcome to planet pop, your a much needed light+sexy relief. Love it. I want the album already. In fact, just come over to London and give me a little live & intimate performance of the album instead. They do say pop is best experienced live don't they? Boys, my email is just to the right of the article. Critical point though, when pop sometimes takes its little boots a tad too seriously its always vital to see pop acts keep things fun. Which StraightUp provide in bucket loads. Thank you (Tack!)

They are insanely catchy pervy and brilliant. I need a tissue!! Actually, although more of a minimal electro tune, you may like the equally pervy Kameron martinez song Kinkyy where he talks about rough bondage sex with his boyfriend. Oh my!!
