Rock Bands with Female Vocals?

post #1 of 92
Thread Starter 
Apparently I'm much more into female vocals than male, even for rock (alternative, pop rock)....I've found The Material, and Hey Monday to be great bands with a lead female singer, but can't seem to find more groups...(don't mention Paramore...I'm serious)

+ YouTube Video


YouTube - Hey Monday - Run Don't Walk with lyrics

YouTube - The Material - No one has to Know

Looking for more newer groups...

Fireflight is very listenable...=0

Flyleaf isn't bad...but reminds me of Paramore...

I know, I like fireflight, I was just talking about flyleaf; at least with my current DAP/IEM/possibly sound file(got from amazon download) I get a lot of sibilance(think that's what its called, a small section that is really harsh/high pitched) seems to mostly happen with her high pitched screams/vocals, or it may be that she does something in them that just really grates with me(though I doubt that, coming from listening to metal with harsh vocals and lots of growls, and a couple of screams)

regardless it seems that I cringe at least once one every song from their self-tilted album

@muxenle, that's what I'm trying to avoid..high pitched screaming...coming from Acoustic Folk/Pop Rock here, so I'm
basically wanting a standout, lyrical female voice backed up (not drowned out) by a great band xD

Not sure if this classifies as "rock," per se, more like "indie." But Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis (same lead singer, the latter band is her solo career) has great stuff to listen to. Words can't explain how creative and clever the rhythms and lyrics are.

Here are some of my recent faves that might work or not.

Mankind is Obsolete - Rise
Metric - Live It Out
Pretty Girls Make Graves - The New Romance
The Sounds - Dying to Say This to You
You Say Party! We Say Die! - XXXX
