Janelle Monae - Cold War

Wow.  This song is incredible.  I literally cannot get enough.

Her latest album, The ArchAndroid, was released back in May this year, but it's only very recently I've heard her work.  Cold War, for me at least, is the stand-out track.  Her style mixes a soulful vocal with a modern twist, epitomised by this track.  Powerful vocals.  Thumping, driving, almost drum and bass style, percussion.  And an awesome guitar solo in the middle eight.  Brilliant stuff.  I sincerely hope she receives more exposure in the UK soon...


Check out her dancing to another of her tracks, Tightrope, on the Late Show:
