Stay Away

Song: Stay Away
Artist: Charli XCX
Album: Stay Away

One again... (wink-wink) friend and reader Chris has turned me onto another up-and-coming artist that has quite a lot of potential.  London-based nineteen year old Charli XCX creates goth-tinged electro tracks that marry the freak goddess charms of Kate Bush, with the more modern, ummm... freak goddess vibe of Marina and the Diamonds.  Other influences include The Knife, The Cure, the Zombies, and Grace Jones.

Charli's working on her debut album, which is expected early next year.  Based on first single "Stay Away," and current "Nuclear Seasons," I think there's a lot to look forward to.  She's already opened for the likes of Robyn and Peaches... one to watch in 2012.

You can get a free download of "Nuclear Seasons" is you head over to her official website.

She sounds a bit like Siouxsie & the Banshees to me...

Oh.. I hear that too JHL.

I'm hoping it's not all this dark... I'd like her to have a few fun/qwerky type moments like Siouxie.
