[NEW] Watch Stooshe New Single "Black Heart" Video Premiere


Hot on the heels of their top 5 hit in the U.K. with their debut single "‘Love Me’," boisterous pop trio Stooshe are gearing up to continue their chart momentum with the release of their brand-new single "Black Heart" on June 11.

Produced by expert hit makers Future Cut (Lily Allen, Olly Murs, Professor Green), "‘Black Heart’" further helps define the group's colorful, Motown-inspired sound, which is fueled by their lyrical wit and powerful vocal harmonies that is not only mighty catchy but also totally fun. The song will be the lead feature on the trio's aptly-titled upcoming debut album "‘Swings And Roundabouts’" that will be released later this year.

The group, which consists of members Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold, were assembled by writer/manager Jo Perry following a series of auditions and scouting work at London's Topshop. Stooshe evolved into three distinct personalities that are "as attainable as they are aspirational," as explained in a press release.

In fact, there's a deeper meaning to their seeming carefree music and performance. Stooshe wants to "determinedly deconstruct stereotypes" and do "away with outdated idea when it comes to who they are." The result is an all-inclusive pop sound packed with bold (and sometimes provocative) wordplay, a distinct sense of style and an instantly catchy groove that is distinctly British but has a decidedly global appeal.
