when you wish upon a star

Perky, UK duo, Mini Viva, have returned with another poptastic track. "I Wish" is the fabulous follow up to their debut single, "Left My Heart In Tokyo", which peaked at #7 in the UK singles charts just a few short months ago.

Something about them reminds me of Mel & Kim. The song has shades of the more languid and lovely moments from Pet Shop Boys. It must be the Xenomania production and its close proximity to the release of the PSB album, "Yes". And for no reason in particular, I'm reminded of "Too Many Walls" by Cathy Dennis. Dare I mention that it even sounds like something I might write?

Frankee Connolly and Britt Love were whooshed off to sunny LA where they lensed a video for their latest single.

Super cute and Crayola colorful! But did they need to fly to LA for it just to walk around the city to shoot a video? Surely they could have done this closer to home?

Get that album out soon, ladies!


  1. I like the song and video, but I find their voices a little bland.

  2. Factette: I've got the sampler of the Mini Viva album. "I Wish" is on it, but it's called "Let Me Feel It".
