There’s a real resurgance of powerful female vocals in pop music going on right now. Robyn, Florence + the Machine, Charli XCX, Niki & the Dove. The list goes on and on.
Here’s another one to put on that list: English singer-songwriter Jessie Ware. Her debut album, Devotions, isn’t due out until August 20th (via PMR Records), but she’s already put out enough excellent tracks to garner her a steady buzz around the right parts of the Internet.
