Ones to Watch in 2011: Wolfette
There's something mesmerizing about English electropop/rock singer Wolfette. I can't quite put my finger on what it is that mesmerizes me, all I know is I like her and I think you will as well. On August 1st, Wolfette releases her new single, "Different Story," in the UK and it's a hard-hitting, 90s retro pop jam filled with punch and attitude, as one would expect from an artist with a fesity name like 'Wolfette.' Listed among her influences: Garbage, Beck, Blondie, Peaches, Muse, Kasabian, The Kills, MSTRKRFT, The Killers, Prodigy, Goldfrap, Justice, Gwen Stefani, P!nk, and PJ Harvey. I like where this girl's head is at! She's a total bad-ass rocker chick with electropop sensibilities. Per the official press release:
"'Different Story' is a throwback to 90’s indie pop. The song details the feelings of hope in a relationship on the verge of break up and showcases Wolfette’s brilliant vocal delivery, as well a knack for writing a catchy atmosphere track. Fusing guitar and synths, Different Story is the perfect track to accompany you through the summer."
Catch the stunning music video for Wolfette's new single, "Different Story" below. I kinda think she looks like a bad-ass version of Natalie Imbruglia, no? Catch Wolfette live July 19th at the O2 Academy 2 in Islington and on August 18th at The Workshop in Hoxton. While "Different Story" isn't available until August 1st, UK fans can download her previous single "Waiting For The Explosion" on UK iTunes HERE.
