London: Nadine Coyle has revealed that Girls Aloud studio work was a difficult job, insisting she spent "hours and hours" recording vocals without her bandmates.
The Northern Irish singer shot to fame as one-fifth of the group, which was created on ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ in 2002.
But she admits the workload wasn`t always fairly distributed when it came to recording Girls Aloud tracks.
"I did more studio work than the other girls that was my kind of area. I would do hours and hours, layering vocals and stacking them together,” the Daily Star quoted Coyle as telling the Daily Telegraph.
“Brian (Higgins, producer) decided he could get more work done if it was just me and him in the studio, and then the girls would come in at the end and sing on top.”
"It was difficult, definitely, because we all began in a competition, so everybody feels justified, like, ``I`m a singer and the public voted for me``”.
“But you don`t have time to feel sorry for yourself, because you`re all working as hard as each other. Singing is only a small part of it. After a while, you realise it`s more about miming on TV and doing a cute dance routine," she said.
However, Coyle, who is currently embarking on a solo career while Girls Aloud is on hiatus, insists she never feuded with her bandmates.
"The press likes to create catfights with girl bands. I`m not that vicious or wayward. There was real camaraderie in Girls Aloud, the feeling of one for all, and all for one," she added.
