Gabriella Cilmi: 'On A Mission'

By
Released on Monday, Mar 8 2010

The squiggly-diddly bassline! The Barbarella outfits! The state-of-the-art-circa-1982 keyboard stabs! The legs, oh the legs! The dancers wearing nout but their bras and knickers! The whopping great "I am a woman on a mission" chorus! Hang on... this isn't actually Gabriella Cilmi, is it?

But it is. In an entirely unexpected volte-face, the Aussie songbird has swapped the soul-lite stylings of her 2008 debut for full-on dance-pop - the sort of crowd-pleasing dance-pop designed to get handbags dropping from Dundee to Dunstable. She looks and sounds like she's having a blast. And she pulls it off. Like a bag of Mini Cheddars, 'On A Mission' is instantly satisfying, moreish too and just as cheesy as it needs to be.
