FRESH: ‘Supergirls’ – Hillary Anne

Hillary Anne celebrates “Supergirls”

Electro-Pop

23yo West African singer Hillary Anne made her debut last year with “Childs Play” and has just released her fourth track and first of 2021, “Supergirls”.

The song has a wicked synth drum sound and a gorgeous pop backing track for Hillary to exercise her brilliant voice and enjoy every moment of it.

“Supergirls” is pure power pop with a nod to the late 80’s but sounding very fresh and modern and crisp. This is one to put on again and again and it has a positive message for us all.

As Hillary explains: “Having written the song myself, I had a clear idea of the sound I was going for which is upbeat, dark and dance-ish. During the writing process, what I had in mind was a response to the song ‘The Boys Are Back in Town’ by Thin Lizzy. The song is about pre-coronavirus time and portrays girls having fun and being young and reckless”.

After the first production of the track and also being a massive fan of 60s/70s/80s rock’n’roll, Hillary decided to show that side of her through the song by adding some electric guitars to it. And they work! As an artist, Hillary strongly believes in breaking the barriers of culture or even race associated music genres. “Supergirls” is that anthem and marks a change of direction from her previous recordings, “Next To Mine” and “Double-Faced”, which sit firmly in rock territory.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
