We've been meaning to write about London's FOE for so long it's not even hilarious, but fortunately the British chanteuse writes the kind of haunting torchsongs that refuse to fade with time. Together with her writing partner in crime Entrepeneurs, FOE pens the kind of eerily mesmerizing ballads that recall early Florence & The Machine, before the major label budgets and popstar makeover brought her sound to the masses. "A Handsome Stranger Called Death" is her quintessential track, all funereal synths and doom-and-gloom beats as FOE sings of a brush with death himself: "tall dark and handsome / a cigar in your mouth / a little black dog and the biggest smile".

Thanks a million for introducing me to FOE and Entrepreneurs. What a way to start the morning.

This girl is very good. The music is very dark and the backing track works perfectly with her voice. Its been a while since i've heard something like this. I would recommend Tyran Song & the Nirvana cover Serve the Servants(aptly chosen).
