London has arguably the best music scene around, with thousands of talented musicians emerging every day, most of which are unsigned acts waiting for their big break.
Unsigned Friday brings you the very best unsigned music artists from around the capital, as well as giving these acts a platform to promote their music.
This week, getwestlondon 's Emily Chudy caught up with London-based Electro Pop duo MissDefiant.
MissDefiant are a duo that consists of singers Jordan Cather and Emily Rose Adams. The band as been together officially for about a year, after meeting at college.
MissDefiant said: "Our influences are a cross between Madonna, Lady Gaga and Die Antwoord. We love their stuff [Die Antwoord], they're quite controversial.
"I think we've got a mainstream sound but we like to think we're a little more quirky. We're a sort of mainstream pop sound but with an edge to it."
Ms Adams said: "Jordan and I trained together at Millennium, which is a performing arts college in south east London; we hadn't spoken for a few years and we bumped into each other.
"We both discussed that we'd like to do something musically. We've actually got a very similar taste in music, so it worked out really well."
The band have just released a new single, 133T, and are currently working on another, Ear Candy, before releasing their debut album later this year.
MissDefiant said: "We've had a great response so far! The album's going to have a few of the tracks that we've released, as well as some new stuff which we've finished quite recently in the studio with our producer Mike. He's awesome, we work together really well as a team.
"We're aiming for the end of summer to release the album."
The band's next single, Ear Candy, will be a three-track single due for release in May. It will feature the single, an acoustic version, and a remix by Rey Reel, producer of Beyoncé's Flawless track.
MissDefiant said: "On our last release we did a three-track release which is what we're going to be doing on every release now, on every single, there's going to be three tracks - the main single, a more stripped-back acoustic version, and a remix from someone else.
"It's going to be a very electronic album but we're going to play around with some acoustic versions as well. It's going to be a very fun, electronic, upbeat album."
The band also work with children and teens, and this month are hosting a series of online safety, cyber bullying and literacy workshops in Ealing schools, launching at Berrymede School in South Acton on Friday May 20.
MissDefiant said: "Our target audience is the bubblegum pop age, a lot of our followers are very young, and it [cyber bullying] was something we became aware about online. We're London-based, so we're starting in Ealing and we've got our first workshop in a few weeks time.
"We'll be talking about our own experiences online. We put ourselves out there, sometimes we do get trollers and abusive comments, but we're older and we understand that it's not us it's them, so we're trying to use our experience and turn it into advice for young people. It's a really big issue now."
MissDefiant's latest single 133T speaks out against a nightlife dominated by drugs with a strong anti-drugs message, as well as looking at peer pressure.
MissDefiant said: "We haven't made it like a nursery rhyme, but it's aimed at younger kids and it's about being defiant against bullies."
MissDefiant said: "In the future, we just want to get as into the mainstream world as much as we can... We want to have our music up there in the charts, we want to be touring. We want more people to hear our music and be travelling and touring."
A reviewer for Music, Musings and Such , said: "MissDefiant are a powerhouse that certainly cannot be accused of soppiness and lacking any depth.
"Their compositions and songs are capable of lifting through the atmosphere and eliciting big emotion - whilst appealing more to a teenage audience."
