Oh and don't overlook Lea Lea's canny cover of the Talking Heads creepy classic <i>Psycho Killer</i> too for a very modern and alternative take on Byrne and co's sinister single from 1977.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Lea Lea's sassy style has drawn comparisons to Missy Elliot, MIA, Kelis and Grace Jones, but she's really a one-off - at once alluring, charming and commanding. Writing songs that encourage dialogue and challenge female stereotypes, whilst being thoroughly entertaining, Lea Lea thrives on the darker side of music yet delivers her songs with an infectious warmth.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Modern in style, dramatic in production - Lea Lea <i>is</i> the new queen of dark electronic soul. Look out for her at both the Dimensions Festival, Croatia and Southern Soul Festival, Montenegro this summer!<br />
