The UK’s answer to Avril Lavigne, Amy Studt stopped by Radio 1 to talk about her new single ‘Misfit’, which looks set to debut in the top 5 of the UK charts. While Studt is aware of the Lavigne comparisons, she doesn’t really see it herself. “To be compared to anyone who’s a huge star is always gonna be a compliment.

Thanks, cool!’, whether I am particularly a fan of her or not,” she said. “I’ve actually got her album. I like to get people’s albums and listen to it and make my own impressions. I think it’s actually quite good, there’s quite good stuff on there. But it’s not really my cup of tea, personally.”
