This fifteen year old chanteuse bearing her soul (via Justin Vernon) on Conan is Birdy. All the way from the UK, Birdy released an album of covers of popular indie rock songs, including––you guessed it––Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love,” but also Phoenix’s “1901,” Fleet Foxes’ “White Winter Hymnal,” The Postal Services’ “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight,” The xx’s “Shelter,” The National’s “Terrible Love,” among others. If you’re into delicate prodigy-grade piano pop, you should really check it out, but first watch her powerful performance below:
