2012 certainly seems to be the year where genuinely enthralling female led talent is dominating. With the help of Jessie Ware and AlunaGeorge’s current Radio 1 a-list residency – this new breed of pop is constantly teetering on the edge of mainstream acceptance. Three artists who are all tipped for big things over the next twelve months are Foxes, FAYE and Syron – catch all three acts together in October for a very special show at London’s Madame Jojo’s.
An artist whose sound is described as understated, evocative, catchy and commanding – FAYE‘s blend of electronica and pop leaves an indelible impression on all who listen in. Described by The Guardian as “spectacular” and The Independent citing her as a “formidable creative force” whilst MTV state that the young Swedish singer is “poised to meet all expectations”.
Foxes is in actual fact just one – Louisa Rose Allen. The Southampton-born 22 year-old followed her big sister to London the day she turned 18. With single ‘Youth’ (and its mournful b-side ‘Home’, and resulting remixes) having so far garnered over a million combined Soundcloud and YouTube plays, her recent signing to Sony is soon to propel this young star into the limelight very soon indeed.
Finally, Syron is the latest in the line of dubstep inspired acts to emerge from the underground dubstep scene in London. Her brand new single ‘Breaking’ massively easy on the ear, Syron’s breezy vocal dexterity is at the fore with the hook “I keep forgetting that I’m not allowed to love you” a guaranteed ear worm for the foreseeable.
