Hot New Talent Alert: Antigone

Antigone

Look at her. She's so red hot, she glowing.

Antigone is one of the most exciting pop acts to hit the British pop scene in a while. And I am not saying that because I did shots with her at a Darren Hayes after-party to celebrate my birthday in London last year.

Antigone is genuinely one of those rare talents who will make you wet your panties. This cool chick has a vision, a message and a dance beat that will keep you rocking for hours after midnight.

Some of you might remember Antigone as the voice behind Etherfox and Cerrone. Those projects garnered attention from major industry tastemakers like Pete Tong and collaborations with peers like The Shapeshifters.

Produced by Justin Shave, Antigone's first single "More Man Than Man" is one of the more dance-pop oriented tracks on her forthcoming new LP. Many of the other album tracks have a quirky, alt-pop vibe that remind me of Roisin Murphy's first crunchy solo efforts. "More Man Than Man" is Antigone's interpretation of girl power. With lyrics like, "Don't be acting so cool. I'm your friend I'm not your fool," there is no doubt who is wearing the pants in this relationship. Antigone is indeed more than a man.

Listen to "More Man Than Man" by Antigone:

Oh yes Antigone is the bomb..trust me she is funkier than funk can be, i hope she reaches the top with this tune and i have no doubt that she will tear it up when her album is released!..Keep up the support.
