Artist: Lily Allen
Album: Alright, Still
I originally heard LDN on The Planetcast, and instantly fell in love with it. Her floaty, girly voice and the sunny, upbeat music can fool you into thinking this is some kind of Little House on the Prairie music, but it is far from that. The lyrics are harshly honest and funny, gritty and light all at the same time. LDN is as about how double-layered the city is, just like her own music, all pretty and shiny until you do a double take.
It is not unfair to describe Lily Allen’s music as the white girl answer to rap music, especially with her other songs Alfie and Smile from the same album, grit delivered on a white fluffy cloud.
