My top tip for 2011 – CocknBullKid


I’m going to put my neck on the line here and say that the person who deserves to become a star most of all in the next twelve months is one Anita Blay, AKA CocknBullKid.

Though she’s been around for a couple of years now, and has released stuff on Moshi Moshi (the London-based label that has been responsible for early releases by the likes of Hot Chip, Bloc Party, Kate Nash and The Drums), She is now signed to Island. The last few months have seen here support Kele Okereke and Marina and the Diamonds

2011 will see the release of her debut album, entitled Adulthood. The five track sampler that arrived at 17 Seconds Towers just before Christmas suggests that this is a lady who deserves to go places. She leaves Kate Nash and Lily Allen standing and if she’s not battling it out with Amy Winehouse and Katy Perry by the end of the year it’ll be a travesty.

This was the first single released through Island -‘One Eye Closed’

This was her 2009 single ‘I’m Not Sorry.’

…and her forthcoming single ‘Hold Onto Your Misery’ is a five star slice of excellence. No links to post it but this. This is due for release on February 21, 2011.

Meanwhile this is her self-titled track ‘CocknBullKid’
