Her Majesty & The Wolves prove decent things do come out of Pussycat Dolls - watch 'Goodbye, Goodnight" now!

"Yo, y'all can see this scary bitch too, right?"
Once upon a time there was a thing called The Pussycat Dolls.  It was a musical group of sorts, made up of hookers or something and put together by choreographer Robin Antin to satisfy her lesbian fantasy which was less like a fantasy an actual lesbian would have and more like a fantasy that douchy straight men have about college girls with daddy issues who pretend to be lesbians at keg parties in order to get the attention they crave, and accordingly were kind of popular. 

The weird thing about the group was that for the most part they were actually talented, and as a band of singing whores they found a great deal of success worldwide.  But, as is so often the case in the music industry today, the girls' talent hasn't necessarily translated into solo success now that the brothel has broken up.

Well, one of the girls - one that isn't Nicole Scherzinger - is trying to change that, albeit in a somewhat non-conventional way.  Instead of attempting to ride the already-crowded POWERFUL AND FASHIONY POP DIVA escalator to fame and glory, former PCD member Kimberly Wyatt has opted to team up with a DJ thing and create a mildly interesting duo called Her Majesty & The Wolves, which we can all agree is the raddest name a group have deigned to give themselves in QUITE SOME TIME.

So what does this new artistic powerhouse sound like, you ask?

Well, they're a bit like if Ke$ha and The Black Eyed Peas were Eurotrash.  Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.  For instance, their new track, 'Goodbye, Goodnight' is a fairly listenable tune that has lots of the now-requisite "ah-ah-ah" stuttery bits that Americans expect, but has production that sounds as if Cascada's mom came into the studio at the last minute and said, in a thick accent, "BUT IT'S NOT TACKY ENOUGH." 

So.... do with that what you will.
