I think there is a new generation of new artists up and comming which are in their 20s! The Generation Y! Think of Madonna in her early career in the 80’s with ‘Like A Virgin’ just when I was born. Be honest you know the text and the melody.
… a new wave of female artists is crashing against the shoreline of the music industry, bringing with it a tide of glorious eccentricity. Young, glamorous, eccentric and borrowing heavily from 80s style, a host of new female pop artists are challenging the hegemony of guitar-toting skinny indie bands. (Guardian.co.uk)
Lady Gaga, Ladyhawke, Florence and the Machine, La Roux, Lissy Trullie and others. Although Lissy Trullie is more 70’s and Andy Warhole style.
It is they, cultural commentators and industry insiders agree, who are at the vanguard of the most fashionable scene in town. “The tide of skinny boys brandishing guitars has finally abated,” says Emily Sheffield, deputy editor of Vogue. “This year’s swell is all about the girls … eccentric, quirky and as sure about their melodies as they are about their style.”
New York magazine has just declared that 25-year-old Trullie, who plans to tour the UK this summer, has taken up “the red-hot joint of downtown cool”.
… If you ask me. I can think of a revival of the 80’s - which were pretty cool.
