Today’s Alarm Pop comes in the form of the shiny new second single from Union J and it’s called ‘Beautiful Life’. We were starting to worry that they only knew the words to ‘Carry You’ and nothing else. Thankfully, we were wrong and the “next big boyband” are back!
The song opens with the strumming of an acoustic guitar and then the lyrics kick in, “She sees the world through TV screens, all of her friends in magazines”- Could this be a reference to their Magazines and TV Screens Tour?
The easy listening verses burst in a percussion led hook full of empowering energy that makes it impossible not to tap your foot along to. In what we are sure will become a Union J trait, there is repetition of the song title and extended vowel sounds- and it sounds amazing.
We don’t want to jump to conclusions BUT we do think that ‘Beautiful Life’ might actually be better than ‘Carry You’!
