charli xcxThis girl has certainly got one thing, that's bags of energy which is fearlessly unleashed in her latest double A-side single Emmeline/Art Bitch. It is packed full of enthusiasm and up-tempo dance beats keeping you wired from start to finish! The first single that came blaring out of my headphones was Emelline, it offers "megaphone-fuzzed raps and grimly bouncing baselines". Guaranteed to get your feet tapping.

Her superb vocal ability shines in the second track called Art Bitch. She sounds very similar to the likes of Kate Nash and Bjork - which wonderfully illustrates how unique her music is.

I think this 16-year-old has got the potential to tap into the electro/dance genre with a twist and the best thing about her music is she's not afraid to step out of the boundaries. She is on the right track by writing and performing her own material.
