The trio now comprised of Carmen Hadley, Kayli Robinson and Lauryn Taylor Bach may have started out as 1 Girl Nation, but have simply shortened their moniker to 1GN in response to a more mature sound and expanding audience. Sure, these young women are still smack dab in the center of today’s pop trends, but they’ve also grown into powerhouse vocalists individually and collectively. In fact, Unite is loaded with even tighter harmonies than previous projects, while it possesses a wider age-range appeal thanks to a series of confidence-promoting sugar rushes, faith-centered EDM explosions and hopeful power ballads. Granted, 1GN isn’t reinventing the wheel when it comes to girl pop, but this is still a solid effort from a revamped act poised to make a positive splash.
