Upon discovering Emilie Autumn some time ago, I’ve quickly added her to my list of delightfully pseudo-Victorian showfolk. Her songs generally involve edgy violin work with her characteristic vocals and electronic flourishes, sometimes harsh, sometimes sweet, but always engaging.
Aside from this, in interviews she presents herself in a very authentic light, as she discuses the historical and social commentary of her work in a cogent and interesting manner. Critical of modern mental health and gender stereotypes, Emilie seems unafraid to bring her past into her art, first for herself, as she admits, and for anyone who could benefit thereafter.
I am proud to consider myself a plague rat.
So check her out at Youtube where wingedzephyr has put together several lovely backgrounds with timed lyrics.
