The 90’s was a fantastic time for R&B, with artists like Destiny’s Child topping charts on a global scale, Boyz II Men becoming household names across the world and Aaliyah who was revolutionising the genre. Now we’ve got the new three piece girl group 303, made up of friends Io, Maddie and Chloe, who bring that glorious magic that these bands offered and bring it into the modern era and have consistently shown that they’ve got something special in them.
Their debut Whisper is filled with classic sounds from the 90’s with velvety smooth three part harmonies mixed with a nostalgic backing of layered trap beats, a silky smooth piano melody and a super chilled out melodic sound. Dreamin’ came out later on with the track focusing on craving someone you can’t have, but living out the fantasy in a state of sweet slumber with the honest lyrics and yearning vocal alongside them effortlessly expressing this.
These young girls have the potential to be the UK’s next big girl group with their fresh yet retro sound really capturing the hearts of people and I fully believe 2020 could be the year they become a household name.
