Well as it is women in translation month , I’m twisting the rules slightly and going for three songs this week by Bands lead by female singers and then next female singers . I have mostly picked male voices over the time I have brought songs and music as a sideline on this blog as ever my choice look back .
The Sundays were for a brief moment the hottest English indie band the smiths with a female singer , but sadly the pressure probably was to much but their debut album was a real gem and this song is a track from it .I hope they return one day been a long time but that voice is amazing .
A band from the shoegazing era that weren’t really a shoegazing band but very hip mix of elctro and lyrics pre carbage (often thought they were before there time ) and for a while and darlings of the press .As any uk based folks my taste tends be bands the NME liked in those years when that magazine still meant something .
A band that thankfully split then reformed a few years ago , the fragile voice of the lead singer of Mazzy star Hope Sandoval voice is haunting .
What are your favourite bands with female singers
