It's a bittersweet moment when a really good band decides to go on hiatus. It's sad because they will most likely not get back together even if it's just "temporary." Girls Aloud proved this phenomenon to be true, even though they had a short-lived reunion (it's still a sore topic for me). However, it also signals the start of a different act's career as they move forward with their former success. Such is the fate of Danish all-star band Alphabeat, responsible for the peppy "Fascination" as well as this ridicumazing remix of Lady Gaga's "Telephone". Calling a hiatus earlier this year, their lead female singer Stine Bramsen wasted no time in taking over the Danish charts by releasing her first solo single "Prototypical" which reached number 2 there.
Following her lead, Anders SG and Anders B of Alphabeat (too bad for the other Anders) decided to venture on their own to create their new group THANKS. Along with this announcement, the group released their first song and video for "Comeback Girl." And THANK god, it's fucking amazing. A super bonkers pop song that actually sounds like the music is having a seizure, Comeback Girl is easily the most exciting thing Alphabeat has made in recent years. It would actually sound just as good in a disco as it would sound in a hoedown. This country-Motown esque banger and its fun exercisey video is extremely impressive, even if the boys missed out on the opportunity to call themselves The Anders.
