Icelandic torch

Despite her name, Emiliana Torrini was born and raised in Iceland. She sounds more like Portishead's Beth Gibbons than like Bork when she sings, though -- very torchy.

This is "Telepathy" off her 1999 album Love in the Time of Science. You can hear some clear Portishead influence in this music, but also the Icelandic influence of predecessors like Bork. It's a nice mix.
