Pretty AND singing VERYWELL, the new trend!

I’m digging non-US female singers right now. Whatmore, they sing well and are pretty! Not just studio pushed eyecandy (hint hint the top 40), but full on earcandy THE WHOLE PACKAGE!

Kimbra is from New Zealand, so I assume she was an elf background character for LOTR.
She is rather vertical in her videos (what does that mean? SHE IS TALL I GUESS. I don’t know how to review music)

Kimbra, Cameo Lover

You’ll recognize her from the rather popular “GOTYE – Someone I used to know”.

Pshh, Cee Lo Green eat your big heart out!
Explicit audio is best!, but this one is just the album cover.

Lily Allen’s: Fuck You, EXPLICIT

But use this musicvideo version below to see the nifty video, I couldn’t find the official explicit musicvideo so you’ll have to deal with weird noises instead of proper expletives.

Lily Allen’s: Fuck You, music video with silly sound effects that really detract from the song and annoy me

Find her “Smile” song as well! Love her voice. Oh, from the UK or something. Go Wiki it. Or stalk on Twitter @MrsLRCooper . She needs more hits on (yeah I just plugged that, so what?).

Hmmmm. Ok, I don’t really “get out” when it comes to music, so people need to comment and recommend their fav non-US-English-Speaking(how else do I know if I like the lyrics??)-girl singing music!

    The Sounds are amazing, I used to listen to them all the time!

    It was the pink body suits that brought you, wasn’t it?

    You could always try RuPaul too. Some of that stuff is damn catchy.

    Ha! I listen to La Roux constantly. Justice I listen to as well, btw they are produced by the same team (or something, same label, I dunno).

    I just totally forgot about those two though.

    My suggestions for you (not all fit your criteria, but give them a chance): La Roux, Robyn, Emilie Simon, The Veronicas, The Sounds (I know I gave you their old CDs and you thought they were okay, their new one is more dance-y), and Ellie Goulding.

    There are two British singers who I’ve heard of but I don’t listen to them. One is Neon Hitch (sings a song with the guy from Gym Class Heroes) and the other is Grimes.

    The Kimbra song reminded me of Fitz and the Tantrums. They’re US and have a male and female singer so they don’t completely fit your criteria, but give them a chance. Also, give Justice a shot. They remind me of Daft Punk.
