[New Video] Little Mix: "Wings"

little mix group

Last year's X-Factor winners, Little Mix, have just released the video for first single, Wings (yes, I am wilfully blocking out their massacre cover of Damien Rice's Cannonball).

Managing to capture the energy of their youthful years, Wings is surprisingly good. I'm not sure it's something I'd be putting on my Ipod- the rhyming of "things" and "listening" literally made me cringe- but it's a lot better than some of the tosh that other winners have released as a first single.

Cracking harmonies, a confident sound and they've managed to stay away from the high heels! You go girls! I will definitely be interested to hear what they follow Wings with- please just not let it be a ballad(!)

Edit: I've just seen the high heel donned cover art of the single [here], and am now sad....


  1. Divadevotee, it's called Wings :P

  2. LOL! Thanks....let me go clean that egg off of my face!

  3. Does anyone else think it sounds very...Beyonce, it almost sounds like a specific one too but the woman has so many I can't think of it!

  4. I like the song, although I feel like they are all very hard to distinguish, I dont know if its the fact they they are all contralto's (bar one - or at least thats what they sound like) and they cannot create an individual tone or what! I also thought the vid was kinda cute, I like that they are fresh meat in the industry if you like but they will never be as good as Mutya Keisha Siobhan will be hehe ;p
