Hot Video Alert: Eliza Doolittle - Rollerblades


If you've been reading my blog with ANY sort of regularity, you're already familiar with British singer/songwriter Eliza Doolittle. I've been obsessing over her since the first time I heard her witty little ditty called "Skinny Genes." By the time she released "Pack Up," I was already head-over-heels smitten with her music. So smitten was I that I purchased the import of her self-titled album, preaching it's gospel to any music-loving friend who'll listen to me.  Looks like it was all worth it in the end because Eliza Doolittle is getting ready to launch in the U.S. in early 2011 via Capitol Records. Brilliant! Back in the UK, Doolittle's set to release her third single "Rollerblades" on October 18th. "Rollerblades" was produced by Craigie Dodds and Jonny Sharp and written by Dodds, Sharp and Doolittle. The song is the follow up to her most successful single to-date "Pack Up" which peaked at #5 on the UK singles chart. While Doolittle was only briefly in New York City to film the summery video for "Rollerblades" I have no doubt that she'll be back to promote the album sometime next year. Hopefully I'll be lucky enough to see her do her thing on stage.  The video is adorable, matching the islandly vibe of her previous single. Check out Doolittle in the "Rollerblades" video below:
