D'luv emailed me today that The Revelations appear to be having a resurgence via Eurovision. The group is managed by Alan McGee of Creation Records/Oasis fame. In January '07 they were tipped on the same lists that made instant stars of Adele and Duffy, but alas - despite a killer single in If I Called You On The Telephone - the girls did not take off. In fact, they never got a physical release for their album, which is on iTunes.
Their Eurovision Song Contest entry is a new tune called It's You and sound remains 60's girl-groupish a la The Pipettes. The look has evolved: they are sexing it up more now, though I still think they need a better stylist. Did they walk onto Kylie's empty In Your Arms photoshoot set up there?
If you want to buy a few tunes, I recommend the aforementioned Telephone, which was on my top songs list last year, along with You're The Loser and I'm A Lover.
