2009 really is turning out to be the year of female fronted Electro, we’re practically spoiled for choice as the acts we’ve been watching for months breakthrough, one after another.
The latest addition, however, is no bandwagon jumper. Belarusian/Scottish Lucy Ross A.K.A Dollskabeat had got something deep and mysterious going on. The singing on her début single ‘Zodiac Rising’ flit from almost operatic to almost rapping creating a landscape of different vocal textures.
Like La Roux, in that they are both 80’s influenced ElectroPop and have unique vocal styles, but with a darkness reminiscent of The Knife and a strong likeness to early Eurythmics, Dollskabeat offers a level of maturity to this year’s ElectroPop scene.
A hypnotic, analog synth laden, invocation, ‘Zodiac Rising’ really gets under your skin.

Having already achieved some exposure and BBC Radio play Dollskabeat is definitely one to watch.
‘Zodiac Rising’ is released May 4th on Optimo Music, until them head on over to the Dollskabeat MySpace to check some other tracks and give Lucy some love.
