Music Friday: Girly edition

For some reason, I've recently been obsessed with new music in an unabashedly synth-heavy, middle-of-the-road vein featuring female singers. They tend to be British, or at least non-American. 

I've already blogged a few artists of this ilk: Goldfrapp, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Imogen Heap (Frou Frou).

Here are some new ones from around the world:

From the United States: Uh Huh Her (the only Americans mentioned in this blog post!). This is "Not a Love Song":

From Wales: Jem. Here's "They," with instrumental backing stolen from Bach:

From Australia: Decoder Ring. Here's "Fractions":

From Norway: Kate Havnevik. You can listen to a few of her songs at her MySpace -- I especially recommend "New Day." How timely.
