Fans of Florence, Duffy, Lorde and Lana Dey Rey should get ready for Emily Clibourn.
She is what Lana is trying to be...except she doesn't have to try. She just oozes cool and this girl is talented as hell!
I think, if promoted correctly, she could be bigger and outlast a lot of those ladies as well.
See why for yourself.
I LOVE THIS!!

Their music leans a bit more on the electronica than the pop...which to me is great.
