Millionaires are apparently the hottest new electro-pop trio to cause controversy across the US. Sisters Allison Green and Melissa Marie, and friend Dani Artaud are fresh off the Huntington Beach ‘scene’ scene. Since 2007 they have released two EPs, with ‘Just Got Paid, Let’s Get Laid’ being their debut since being signed by Decaydance in Summer 2009.

If you can imagine the worst, most painful thing your ears have ever had to endure you still can’t imagine the travesty Millionaires are. The ridiculousness of these scene girls isn’t just annoying but causes anger to course through mine and undoubtedly so many other’s very veins. Following a minute long conversation interlude, the opening title track begins with cliche electro beats… and that’s when I immediately want to turn it off. The trio have absolutely no substance to their lyrics which normally wouldn’t matter too much, but the song sounds like it could have been written by a 10 year old – that’s if a 10 year old had the filthiest mouth known to man. The melody is bland beyond belief and a complete waste of four minutes.

‘Alcohol’ is a catchier tune mirroring the sound of fellow scene slut Uffie. With a dub-step breakdown slammed right in the middle, this song is much more like what you’d expect from a Decaydance esque act. The rampantly alcoholic trio invite you to “Get fucked up” with this 80’s sounding electro club anthem. Unfortunately this is the only slight, and I mean complete emphasis on the word ‘slight’, highlight of the EP.

Millionaires are definitely one of those ‘bands’ who are only about the hype they’ve seemed to garner upon themselves. They’ve certainly caused a stir, but let’s hope their minute of fame will soon die and take them along with it.
