In the blog entry of March 29th, we featured three songs with strong female voices. That March entry can be accessed by CLICKING HERE. Today, it’s another set of female-strong songs, but this time with a violent theme. In the first, the band name includes the word “kill.” In the second, the song title includes the same word, while the lyrics of the third repeatedly refer to “killing me."
Lexy and the Kill is a band based in London. While their song “We Can Dance Alone” is receiving the most attention, we favor “Black Dog,” with its often minimalist approach to instruments and its layered vocals when the song reaches the 2:45 mark.

Sia Furler ("Sia") is from Australia. She has a style similar to Lana Del Rey, but Sia arrived before the flash that was Lana Del Rey. Similar to the song above, "Kill and Run" leaves the best for last. In the final minute of the song, Sia sings with such power and emotion that we have found ourselves repeatedly replaying those 60 seconds."Kill and Run" by Sia

Beatrice Eli is from Stockholm, Sweden. She was originally interested in jazz, but switched her focus to soul music. She likely would have been successful in either genre, but we are selfishly happy she is in the R&B arena.“Violent Silence” by Beatrice Eli
