Next Big Thing: Nottee

The Lykke Li / Robyn comparisons are inevitable, so let’s get those out of the way right now. Yonge, blonde, Swedish, eccentric, minimal dance-y Björk-influenced pop – it also describes the provocatively named Nottee (née Nova Drougge), who, on the strength of only two tracks on her MySpace page (one of which is featured on the latest, influential Kitsuné compilation) is quickly gathering buzz. I was kind of hoping “Control” was a cover of the Janet Jackson classic, but Nottee’s track is just as jamming. Nice.
