The music that's sending her onto pop's big table may be channeling the spirit of The Human League and Yazoo, but Elly Jackson -- as she's known off stage -- first discovered music in her dad's Neil Young and Nick Drake records. From here she picked up a guitar and started writing her own music, debuting early versions of future electronic hits like 'Quicksand' on the South London folk scene. "Well," she corrects, "there's not really a scene, just a bunch of people calling each other sell-outs. All they'd listen to was Jeff Buckley, and I thought it was so boring I couldn't stand it. I'm not the kind of performer who likes to sit still with a guitar, but that was all I had." Fortunately, as she strummed away at one house party, a songwriter called Ben Langmaid was watching and soon they were studio partners. "One day me and Ben were working on a song and starting playing with some of the synths lying around at Ben's. We put a synth line over the acoustic track we had been working on and it just took off. From that day the guitar started to seem a little obsolete to us."
