Biography

Girls Aloud are a British pop band to rise to glory thought the TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The girls had their triumph thank to the striking hit Sound of the Underground, remaining first in the national charts for almost a month. Early in 2003, it was followed by the next single, No Good Advice, nearly as successful as the first one. Both songs were included in the debut album by Girls Aloud, Sound of the Underground, released in spring 2003. It was a thoroughly considered and proficiently executed project based on contemporary pop music. The third single from the alum also entered Top 3. In November 2003, the ensemble released the song Jump exclusively for Love Actually. By that time, Sound of the Underground had already run platinum.

This album was not promoted by a large tour due to the unexpectedness of the results it reached. It prompted Girls Aloud to return to the studio quickly. Their new song was the single The Show, recorded against the pop music patterns. This release signified a new stage in the band’s evolution with the new image and new music style of Girls Aloud. Their sophomore album, What Will the Neighbours Say?, appeared even more professional and interesting than its predecessor, which was overloaded with trite pop solutions. All the girls of the quintet got involved in writing the material for the new studio work. All fresh releases from Girls Aloud were much desired and automatically became bestsellers. Special attention was paid to the smashing single I'll Stand by You, a cover of The Pretenders song. The money earned from the release of this pop-chart topper went to the fund of aids to the children of poor families.

Girls Aloud went on their first big scale tour across the Great Britain as late as in 2005. They started it in status of the best band according to Glamour and nominees for BRIT Awards. In December of the same year, they enlarged the discography with a studio work called Chemistry. Its track Models was featured on the soundtrack to the documentaries Girls Aloud: Home Truths, and Girls Aloud: Off the Record, a truthful story of the band’s life outside the stage and the studio. Despite the platinum status, Chemistry failed to get as high in the charts as the other two albums. The most standout song was See the Day, a long time favorite of all leading radio stations. 2005 saw the birth of the band’s first DVD, Girls on Film, containing their promos and TV performances, and then the release if the What Will the Neighbours Say.

In 2006, Girls Aloud headed for New Zealand and Australia to conquer the local audience with the promotional track-list for Chemistry. Shortly after, they released their fist collection of the best songs, Sound Of Girls Aloud: The Greatest Hits, the highest selling album in the band’s history. It was the moment of glory for Girls Aloud. The band’s members were regularly included into the ratings of the world’s most sexual women, while the quintet itself kept performing at the largest venues of the UK. Immense popularity and boundless love of fans did not become a reason for Girls Aloud to slow down their studio and stage activity. The last to date albums, Tangled Up (2007), and Out of Control (2008), became the specimens of top class dance music with strong and moving vocals and unexpected music moves.
