In the late ‘90s, the girl band phenomenon B*Witched were superstars, with super-catchy pop, Irish charm and double-denim being a constant fixture at the top of the charts.
They became the youngest girl group to have a UK#1 with the irresistible double-Platinum ‘C’est La Vie’, which they followed with another three consecutive chart-topping singles (‘Rollercoaster’, ‘To You I Belong’ and ‘Blame It On The Weatherman’) as well as two Top 5 albums with big moments including the Royal Variety Performance to US tours (including with Britney Spears and *NYSNC), B*Witched did it all.
And now they’re back! Today B*Witched share their brand-new single ‘Birthday’ as they get the Paddy’s Day celebrations started early - and 2023 also marks the 25th anniversary of their smash hit self-titled debut album. With a brimful of energy, self-empowerment and bouncing beats, ‘Birthday’ shouts B*Witched are back. The girls remind you that if an ex pies you off it’s better to eat cake!
No more tears, it’s time to party with your besties and just do what you want tonight. That spirit also shines in the track’s official video where B*Witched don’t just leave a party - they take it with them.
Edele Lynch says: “Whatever comes your way with a few good friends you can turn things around!" The release of ‘Birthday’ continues B*Witched’s rollercoaster return, which began in December when they earned rapturous receptions throughout a huge arena tour as guests to Blue.
Unlike many returning pop groups of their era, B*Witched still consists of their original line-up: twin sisters Edele and Keavy Lynch, plus Lindsay Armaou and Sinéad O’Carroll. As they’ve been through so much together, it’s no surprise that their bond remains solid.
They were all living together as teenagers as they were laying the groundwork for their future, and then their sudden, soaring success resulted in a constant stream of moments that were far bigger than they’d ever dreamed of.
