It’s funny that Siobhan was only with the Sugababes for one album, yet the entire image and sound of MKS has essentially been built around her indie style. Although Sugababes always had a lot of cool cred for a manufactured pop group (at least, they did up until Mutya left), MKS is now written about by Pitchfork, while American websites like Billboard are excited about their return. You can thank Siobhan for that, whose essence has obviously influenced the band beyond measure.
The music video for the trio’s comeback single, “Flatline,” is a contemporary instagram-hipster fest that follows MKS as they stroll around L.A. in a bunch of trendy shit. Siobhan’s pure fashion and style, Keisha is Poetic Justice-era Janet reincarnated, and Mutya remains the most ratchet fucking thing on the face of the planet. No matter what you do to Mutya, she will always be a hoodrat, and that’s a wonderful thing. She’s a real girl, remember?
This is everything I could’ve possibly wanted from the new MKS MV and more, so I’m happy. Everyone will love this just as much as I do, and “Flatline” will go to No. 1 on the UK singles charts. #Fact
