Let the hype begin - Lily Allen has landed
Reminding me in equal part of The Specials, Imani Coppola, and Miss Dynamite the folks in the blogsphere are currently making the right noises to suggest that Lily Allen is going to be generating some serious hype this summer. I’ve had a listen to a few of the demo tracks circulating, and I’m very impressed with what I’ve heard so far. With a wit not dissimilar to Mike Skinner, her tracks are full of wry observations (her PR calls is social commentary) and the ska—pop sounds are making a very welcome return to the Homoeclectic playlist.
The first single to be released is LDN (which if timed correctly, could be absolutely huge, as it has the that perfect London summer’s day feel) – for those who were somewhat disappointed with all the hype around Corrine Bailey Rae (isn’t she just a Norah Jones for 2006?), check Lily out instead.
Check out her myspace for more info/pics/bloc etc etc.
(Pop fact: Lily is infact the daughter of film producer Allison Owen and Keith 'Fat Les' Allen.)
