The Cocknbullkid Finally Comes To The States

IAMSOUND’s next essential release will be Anita Blay aka thecocknbullkid, with her debut EP Querelle out August 4th (my birthday). The 23 year-old pop star in the making has toured with CSS, Metronomy, Late of the Pier and others, appeared on Later... With Jools Holland in the UK last year (practically unheard of for an at-the-time unsigned artist), and also headlined the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, not to mention playing at just about every festival known to man in the UK.

Her debut EP features production from Radioclit (The Very Best, Santigold), Dave McCracken (Beyonce, Ian Brown of The Stone Roses), Blue May and The Aspirins For My Children, and resides on the darker side of pop and that as we all know is never a bad thing. "Clean Apart," which you can download below is a slice of pop perfection that should be all over the radio. It's glossy on the outside but all kinds of grey on the inside. It's one for the floor and if you don't become immediately addicted to this tune you should seek medical attention.

Download: Clean Apart

I had no idea that "Later" was airing in the US. Keane and Bloc Party are on the same episode - Thanks for the tip!
