UK Model-Turned-Musician Florrie Delivers Irresistible "Live a Little"

With a modeling career under her belt as well as collaborations with Kylie Minogue and Pet Shop Boys, life has been pretty charmed for 24-year-old Florence Arnold. But don't begrudge her success—she's not just a pretty face who got the idea she can sing. Girl got talent.

As singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Florrie, this British bird is a legitimately promising musician whose work skews between dance-pop and indie electronic. And her latest tune "Live a Little"—which she wrote for a Sony headphones campaign—may actually be her best yet despite its advertorial roots.

Buoyed by an irresistible horn riff, the tune occupies an under-explored region between Kylie's dance and '60s soul pop. And the video is adorable: It features five Florries parading around a high school gym, taking turns on the drums, trombones, tambourine and vocals.

Take a listen above and try not to be smitten.
