ON THE VERGE: I Blame Coco

WHO: I Blame Coco (Coco Sumner)
WHERE: London, UK.
SOUNDS LIKE: Gritty pop with soul
CONNECT THE DOTS: Pete Doherty, Robyn
CLAIM TO FAME: Raw Vocals, Bohemian Love (w/ Pete Doherty) Sting’s Daughter
FOR FANS OF: Rachael Yamagata, Sting, Damien Marley

She has his eyes, his jawline, his unflinching talent; she even has his voice.

With music in her genes, Coco Sumner (the Police man’s daughter) has been making music since forever and writing for her debut since she was 15. But when she turned the ripe age of 17, she signed to Island Records and got the go-ahead to record her first album, The Constant, under the moniker I Blame Coco. With its October 12 UK release date edging up upon us, the raspy-voiced Coco has been releasing a slew of music videos, including “Self Machine” and “Caesar” (feat. Robyn).

Her vocals on the Pete Doherty-written “Bohemian Love” (rumoured to be written about Kate Moss) is probably what first got her noticed. Well, it’s when I discovered her. And it’s a must-see for all I Blame Coco newbies.

There’s no denying Sting has a very talented bloodline.
