She's like a (Wallis) Bird

Regular readers will know that I've been hot-footing around festivals this summer with Global Cool, and at Scotland's T In The Park, we met one of the nicest artists of the summer, Ireland's Wallis Bird.

Well, Wallis has an album out this week, and I'd recommend checking it out, especially if you like your female singer/songwriters to have more than their fair share of talent (and let's face it, who doesn't?). The album's called New Boots, and for me Wallis' best feature is her voice - on the track Measuring Cities you can hear her showing off the pretty end of her vocal range, but on the album's first number, Can Opener, she sounds like she's giving Beth Ditto a run for her money, which is even more impressive when you know that Wallis is quite the little lady. Check out the video for the single To My Bones and get yourself on iTunes for a listen pronto...
