We don’t know much about this artist yet — in fact we didn’t even know what she looked like until we saw this video — but from the songs we’ve heard it feels like ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ marks the arrival of a major pop talent and an extraordinary songwriter. There are huge things to come and Robinson’s definitely worth keeping an eye on. Her Facebook’s here and her Twitter’s here.
UPDATE: She’s 20, and she’s from Nelson, New Zealand. We don’t know a huge amount about Nelson but off the top of our heads we can tell you that Nelson is the oldest city in the South Island and the second-oldest settled city in New Zealand, It was established in 1841 and was proclaimed a city by royal charter in 1858.
Nelson city is bordered to the west and south-west by the Tasman District Council and the north-east, east and south-east by the Marlborough District Council. The city does not include Richmond, the area’s second-largest settlement. Nelson City has a population of around 50,000, making it New Zealand’s 12th most populous city and the geographical centre of New Zealand. When combined with the town of Richmond which has close to 14,000 residents, Nelson is ranked as New Zealand’s 9th largest urban area by population.
Nelson is well known for its thriving local arts and crafts scene, Each year, the city hosts events popular with locals and tourists alike, such as the Nelson Arts Festival. The annual Wearable Art Awards began near Nelson and a local museum, World of Wearable Art now showcases winning designs alongside a collection of classic cars.
