Last week I wrote about some of my favourite girl bands to prove skeptics wrong about female musicians. I was already convinced, and so it seemed were many of you. Thanks for all the tweets about this, it was great to see a lot of you feel the same, or were at least willing to give some of those listed a try! As I put the post together I realised that were loads more bands I wanted to list, so here is Part II of Girls Rock! I could do about 8 parts to this post but I’m not going to milk the topic, however do let me know if there’s anyone you feel really deserves a mention!
Karen O and the Kids
|More known for being the front woman for Yeah Yeah Yeahs,
this incarnation of KO is more laid back and still that little
bit odd. Glorious.
Stand out track: All is Love
The Long Blondes
|Northern indie rock, catchy sing-a-long type stuffs.|
Stand out track: Lust in the Movies
|80s pop with dubstep infusions and funky RnB vocals|
Stand out track: L.E.S. Artistes
|Indie pop full of doo wops and sha la la’s|
Stand out track: Pull Shapes
|As if you need persuading. Just LOOK at her! She oozes brilliance!|
Stand out track: Train
|Canadian indie schmindies. Sometimes too high pitched to sing
Stand out track: Monster Hospital
Bat For Lashes
|Ethereal wispy beautiful music with haunting vocals|
Stand out track: Horse & I
She & Him
|Zooey Deschanel & M Ward couldn’t be anymore twee. Seriously.|
Stand out track: Sing
|The most mainstream of cool female hip hop females (and
therefore the only one I know). I may sound stupid saying
it, but she is fierce.
Stand out track: Bamboo Banga
|Mental. Seriously unhinged front woman. Best listened to when
really bloody angry.
Stand out track: I Adore You
