Gossip single review

Standing in the Way of Control

Gossip are all set to release the title track from their forthcoming album on 2nd October 2006, and are setting their sights on success. Standing in the Way of Control is a catchy dance floor shaker, with a beat that you can’t help moving along with accompanied by Beth Ditto’s giant but ever so soulful vocals. The song is a reaction to the denial of civil partnerships in the US and has been heralded an anthem by clubbers across the world.

Gossip are on to a winning formula with this upbeat and modern style, and I’m looking forward to hearing what else this band can do.
