Nadine Coyle: 'Insatiable'
Published Sep 21 2010, 13:50 BST | By Nick Levine
Up until a few weeks back, you'd have been entirely justified in filing the Nadine Coyle
solo album alongside pixies, vampires and the purpose of Amanda Holden on the 'Things That Don't Actually
Exist' pile. But then came news of an exclusive distribution deal with Tesco, a Tina Turnerish vibe to the music and a debut solo single that apparently sounded like the Bangles.
And here is that debut solo single. Co-written and produced by Robbie's old mucca Guy Chambers, 'Insatiable' is a bombastic pop chugger - synthy enough for 2010 but not quite
modern-sounding - whose combination of power chords, horns and showboating vocals do indeed invite comparisons with Coyle's forebear in the Belting Voice, Smashing Pins sub-category of pop divas. Honestly though, you'd need to be having a really
manic monday to think this sounds much like the Bangles.> Click here to read our interview with Nadine Coyle
