Three to grow on this Wednesday -- brash Brit rockers, a pensive Swiss miss and boy-girl Warped Tour darlings.
+ Florence and the Machine: Art school drop-out Florence Welch chews up Kate Nash's prim underpinnings and spits them out with Beth Ditto-esque gusto, channeling a little Karen O. on the side. She claims "Kiss With a Fist," isn't about abuse, yet, coincidentally, she also covers Cold War Kids' "Hospital Beds." Watch "Kiss With a Fist" below.
+ Theresa Andersson: Swedish artist Theresa Andersson is already racking up fans on YouTube with the sunny, '60s-soaked sophisti-pop sounds she recorded in her kitchen. And because she's an overachiever, she hand-crafted 1,500 individual CD jackets for her I the River EP.
+ Defy Tomorrow: Mike Oliver and Marissa Mishelle trade speedy rock licks, angst-driven lyrics and possibly hair products in the vein of Paramore. Catch them this summer on the Warped Tour, and catch Marissa on Exiled this August, when bratty My Super Sweet 16ers you love to hate (and love to watch) go to far-away places where they don't even accept platinum cards!!
