Sounds Like: Whoa! Allison is 43 and looks/sounds like she’s 25, but there’s no doubt she lived through the ‘80s on this one.
Free Association: Airy, cheesy synths galore! This is like Scissor Sisters playing her prom.
For Fans Of: Flashdance, Annie, Shirley Bassey.
Sounds Like: The Aussie version of a few pop princesses but with more talent, per usual; a classically trained operatic diva makes sugary pop.
Free Association: Just like Kylie, millions already love her but America hasn’t caught on yet.
For Fans Of: Kate Bush x Katy Perry, P!nk.
