Reasons why Stereos rule:
1) Much like fellow countryman Justin Bieber, they use the term ‘shawty’. Much like fellow scrawny middle class white guy who also looks like a lesbian, they use the term ‘shawty’.
2) They use autotune to such an extent that any vocals done ‘naturally’ actually stand out. They’ve flipped T-Pain’s world upside down.
3) How the singer with such a resoundingly punchable face can get with THAT girl in Summer Girl, the breakthrough hit if you will, blows one’s mind.
4) Doo wop.
But oh it gets better. Yep, Throw Your Hands Up. Lyrically astound, classic video which means fuck all.
Yes, 4) - A SLEEVELESS HOODY. Oh and of course 5) Jhevon Paris who even went on tour with them.
You know how cool hip hop stars do duets with r&b divas? That’s essentially what is happening here. Stereos, your singer is essentially J-Lo, just repeating lines in a girly voice. This counts as number 6)
7) He’s also a member of Fleetwood Mac it would seem, or possibly The Buggles, because that’s what Turn It Up basically sounds like Video Killed The Radio Star or Everywhere whacked in a blender with Metro Station/Hellogoodbye.
Now we need a sad song. A ballad, but still with autotune. YEY BUTTERFLIES. 8) ballad with autotune that’s musically identical to Summer Girl but sad.
Best band of 2010. 9) Integral to their brilliance is the singer.
9 reasons you need Stereos in your life.
Let’s make it an even 10 with the fact that they won a talent show on Canadian show called disBAND where you get a major label deal at the end, so it’s kinda X-Factor meets Orange Unsigned Act.
We get Jedward, they get Stereos. Another reason I want to move to Canada.
