I have this dreadful weakness for pretty girls that plays guitar. Add in an accent, and I am done for. Enter this installment of my rock n roll crushes: Emmy The Great.
This singer/songwriter(real name Emma Lee-Moss) was payed her dues in the burgeoning London anti-folk scene for years before releasing her first single 'Secret Circus' in 2006. An EP followed the year after, and in 2009 she put out her first proper album entitled 'First Love.' My friend John just hipped me to this yesterday and I am already playing it into the ground.
Here is the title track from the new record...a great song.
