STEPS Something In Your Eyes

STEPS Feel the ABBA Fantasy on "Something In Your Eyes"

"A rainy cold November night, you came to me..." STEPS made a thunderous return in September with their appropriately anxious-on-the-dance-floor anthem "What the Future Holds," then gave us a glimpse into their softer side on the follow-up, "Under My Skin." And now, they're unleashing their full…


Steps What the Future Holds

'What the Future Holds': STEPS Tackle the Present Moment & Go Beyond

What the future holds? I mean, your guess is as good as mine...and Lisa Scott-Lee's. We all love to talk a good game about who will Save Pop™ (not that it ever needs saving), but when it comes to stepping in (eh heh), grabbing hold of our hands and hearts, and distracting us from the daily horrors…


The Top Songs of 2017 MuuMuse

The Top 20 Songs of 2017

Surprise: I'm breaking with tradition. As opposed to doing a complete Top 100 Singles list as I've done for the past almost-decade or so (today is the ten year anniversary of MuuMuse, by the way), I've decided to take a different approach. Not because there aren't more than enough good songs out…


STEPS Dancing With a Broken Heart

'Dancing With a Broken Heart': STEPS Tap Delta Goodrem for Their Second Solid Pop Comeback of the Year

STEPS had no business storming back into pop culture in the year 2017 with their almighty, pop-saving comeback single "Scared of the Dark" back in March, nor their shimmering April LP Tears on the Dancefloor and the album's two follow-up tracks, the Benny & Björn-penned "Story of a Heart" and "Neon…


Lisa Scott-Lee STEPS Satan

"Neon Blue" Video: STEPS Surrender to the Music (and Satan!)

"Don't tell me that steps is illuminati" "No pls steps don't be illuminati or else I will kill Satan with the help of god" "The girls are dressed in black & white (masonic); the classic illuminati hand gesture of 'throwing up' the pyramids and the eye of Horus. I'm surprised they are not dancing…


STEPS Tears on the Dancefloor

No 'Tears,' No Tragedy: The Unlikely Return of STEPS (Review)

"I could choose to keep on loving a ghost or make new memories instead." It was a simpler time: Alcazar. Infernal. Cascada. September. The Sisters Minogue. The early-to-mid 2000s provided a seemingly endless array of thumping Euro-pop floor-fillers. Leave it to STEPS to step(s) back in time like…


Steps You Make Me Whole

"You Make Me Whole": Steps, Even Less Scared of the Dark, Stay Winning

Did you know that Steps not only saved pop in 2017, but are now continuing to do so? After absolutely nailing it with "Scared of the Dark" last month — an against-the-odds triumph for a campy bubblegum pop troupe celebrating their 20th anniversary — Lee, H, Claire, Faye and Lisa Fucking Scott-Lee…


Totally Scott-Lee Lisa

Still Electric, Still B-List at Capital: A Look Back at Lisa Scott-Lee's 'Totally Scott-Lee'

“Who buys Lisa Scott-Lee records?” “My question since the beginning.” Plenty of pop stars deal with disappointing charts. But few learn of their song’s unflattering position on live television. And even fewer — just one pop star in the world, really — agree to quit…


Scared Of The Dark Steps

"Scared Of The Dark": STEPS Defy the Odds and Save Pop in 2017

Imagine, if you can, a world in which the bestselling, ultra camp British pop troupe behind hits like "Tragedy," "Stomp" and "One For Sorrow" decided to reform twenty years after their debut to release a huge, unrelenting up dance-pop record in the year 2017. A song that completely side-steps the…
