Remember that guilt-free MP3 from spunky British newcomer Daisy Dares You that I posted a few months ago? The 15 year-old singer has been working on her debut album that is filled with melodic, infectious pop rock and a heavy dose of girl power.
Just don't compare her to Avril Lavigne. "No! I hate that comparison," she spits in her biography. "Just because I'm female and young they have to put you in a box. Frankly, anyone who says I was influenced by Avril Lavigne can get stuffed." Well, don't say we didn't warn you.
Daisy is rather gets grouped together with other emerging artists like Florence and the Machine and Bat For Lashes. "Those are definitely the kind of artists that inspire me," she says. "But then when I write, it just seems to come out as pop."
Check out a cute EPK she filmed about recording her album. The video is interspersed with clips from her debut album that gives us a bit of a hint of what's to come. It sure sounds very, very promising. Her debut single "Number One Enemy" features U.K. hotshot rapper Chipmunk, which will be released in the U.K. on February 22.
