All Saints – ‘One Strike’

What is that, I never paid enough attention?

They’ve crossed deserts for miles and swam water for time, and now they’re finally back after a 20 year (aka eternal) hiatus. Yes, All Saints (no, not the overpriced clothing store – the 90s girl band) are finally back with new single One Strike, and trust me, this has been a long time in the making.

Unlike most pop comebacks that seem to spiral downwards into a pit of irrelevance and failure because they sound nothing like their former selves, One Strike is exactly what an All Saints single should sound like – whether it’s 1997 or 2016, and better yet, it doesn’t even sound dated. Perhaps the joy of All Saints is their music’s unique ability to transcend time?

GIVE ME THAT 90s GIRL SOUL, LADIES.
