Album Review: Eliza Doolittle - Eliza Doolittle

Eliza Doolittle's album cover

Release date

12 July 2010

The style

Eliza Doolittle is the latest singer and songwriter to come out of London.

She sounds a lot like Kate Nash and Lily Allen and if you like their style of pop music then you're bound to love Eliza Doolittle.

Her songs are easy to sing along to and although you probably won't want to get up and dance they will definitely put a smile on your face!

The hits

Pack Up, which was released as a single at the beginning of July, is a great tune.

Eliza Doolittle
Is Eliza Doolittle the new Lily Allen?

It uses an old song called Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag for the chorus and it's really catchy and upbeat.

The album is full of hits, but ones to look out for include Missing, which has a really good beat and Mr Medicine, which is the perfect pop song for summer.

The misses

Eliza Doolittle has made a really good album and it's hard to pick out any misses.

It's a great album to listen to while you're hanging out with friends but the only downside is there aren't really any songs that are good for dancing.

Will you still be humming it next week?

Definitely! There's a lot of catchy tunes on this album. Pack Up and Mr Medicine will definitely be in your head for a while, but a lot of the tunes are quite catchy.

Will it make the charts?

This is a great album and will definitely do well in the charts as it's a good album for summer time.

When the single Pack Up is released it's sure to get Eliza even more fans!
