Hafdís Huld - Tomoko  

Ex-Gus Gus member Hafdís Huld has to be one of the cutest and acest people in music at the moment. She's a bit mad but in a very endearing way, and totally hilarious too. Her songs are cute poppy things with great lyrics such as "Ice cream is nice, Monsters are not" and "The scariest guy I've ever seen, Tries to smile but he still looks mean". If I was a songwriter my lyrics would probably be quite like Hafdís', so I think I've found a kindred spirit in this Icelandic poppet. Tomoko was a hit single in her home country and the ace video, which stars her best friend dancing in a catsuit, was nominated for an Icelandic Music Award - she also won an award for her album, the best pop album of 2006. I'm going to buy a copy now and see if it's true.
