A lady trio whose sound is a carefree, pop-oriented, and occasionally foul-mouthed mixture of rap and R&B — comparable to a junior crossbreed of Solange, Electrik Crimson, and Nicki Minaj — Stooshe features Karis Anderson, Alexandra Buggs, and Courtney Rumbold. Supervisor and songwriter Jo Perry constructed the group in January 2011, after a few months of auditions. Prior to the end of 2011, Stooshe released two tracks, “Fuck Me” and “Betty Woz Eliminated,” agreed upon to Warner Music UK, and had been nominated for the BBC’s Audio of 2012 prize (ultimately won by Michael Kiwanuka). A fresh edition of “Fuck Me,” dubbed “Appreciate Me” and offering an appearance from Travie McCoy, premiered as the group’s first genuine one in early 2012. It place the desk for London using the Lighting On, their debut record.
