Southampton welcome Stooshe

It always seems that everywhere I'm not, celebrities are about. However today, Stooshe made an appearance at my University in Southampton where they were involved in an interview, as well as performing three of their songs. 

Stooshe are a band from South London, formed in May 2010 and signed in August 2011.
They are known for their amazing singing talent, quirky style and feisty attitude.
With a lot of fashion students in the room, there were obviously plenty of questions asked which related to fashion. We found out that they are massive fans of Topshop, H&M, River Island and particularly like the dogtooth trend that's come about recently, as well as Nike Blazers and Henry Holland's work.

Stooshe have come such a long way in such a short amount of time. They told us how just last year they performed at Wireless to a small crowd of people, now they are performing at Bestival to 12,000, with a MOBO nomination under their belts.

They girls are so down to earth, they seemed like just another three university students, except for perhaps the fact they weren't hungover!
They are so interested in the music that they aren't like your typical manufactured girl group. The turned down Simon Cowels label due to the fact they wanted to remain in control of their writing. From the beginning the girls have said they want to remain true to themselves and want to write about what they know and have experienced. Wishing to collaborate with Jay-Z and Kayne West you can see that they aren't a average pop band, they've got an edge that makes them so interesting.

The girls have such amazing voices that work so well together, they're so powerful and I really enjoyed their a cappella songs, their cover of TLC - Waterfalls was brilliant.

Their album is set to be released on the 12th November 2012.
