Girl Power: Emilie Autumn and Five Knives' Anna Worstell

Welcome to another post by none other than PLEBoy, your most reliable source of awesomeness. If you've read one of my blogposts about Top 10 Female Vocalists of Now, you will enjoy this one (yes, I have updated it and added them in). Here's your dose of girl power

I just stumbled upon this marvelous woman by the name of Emilie Autumn Lidell (or simply Emilie Autumn) on the internet because of her magical electric violin-playing prowess and punk cabaret doll-like appearance. I figured she is in any way connected to piano rockstar Amanda Palmer, and yes, she is.

Besides her instrumental compositions, her songs "F.L.A.G. (Fight Like A Girl)", "If I Burn" and "Thank God I'm Pretty" made me fall in love with her music. And yeah, check out her take on the never-aging Queen anthem Bohemian Rhapsody. Here's a video from her song "Fight Like A Girl".

Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening to her music especially if you love listening to Nightwish, The Dresden Dolls and other punk cabaret bands, and electronic pop music. 

Speaking of 'electronic', here's another electronic band you might look up to: Five Knives.

If you love listening to the Ting Tings, Sleigh Bells, The Knife, Daft Punk and other electronic music, you're going to love the catchy griefer anthems of Five Knives. With in-you-face vocals by Anna Worstell, their songs are a must-have after a messy break-up or simply if you hate your neighbors. I found them out via Gerard Way's Twitter, and since then, I've been hooked to their music!

Both of these acts are currently on tour, so I hope you support them. Do you know any more current female rockers that you want me to feature? What do you want me to write about next? Comment on the box below or e-mail me at . Thanks for reading! Ciao!
