FEW would dispute the claims of those touting the innovative and refreshing act Be Charlotte for superstar status.

The exceptional talent Charlotte Brimner fronts the Dundee three-piece with an assurance and drive that is somewhat frightening for a girl with so many years in the industry still ahead of her.

Her confidence will only grow as their infectious material spreads over the airwaves and in sold-out venues, with PJ Molloys in Dunfermline playing host on Thursday 16 this month.

Combing a contrasting mix of hip hop, electronics and digital technologies, the unique trio's name is quickly rolling off tongues across the UK and overseas.

Fresh from a tour of South East Asia and European winter festivals, they returned to Scotland for the release of their latest single 'One Drop'.

"I think most people could understand me! At least I hope so anyway," a confident Charlotte remarks on taking her broad Dundonian accent - which serves as a splash of ice water to the face to awaken you from a comfort found through the toe-tapping beatboxing opening loop on the track - to Asian and European ears.

Charlotte told Press:On: "I can adjust my accent, but I still kept it very Scottish! It was a really good experience to do some gigs in those places and get a feel of all the different cities we visited. It was obviously so different to the gigs we've done at home.

"It's always quite a scary thing releasing a new song, especially at the start of the year. One Drop is a little bit different to the other songs we've released, so I was a little bit apprehensive about it. People do seem to be enjoying it though, and it's always really nice reading so many positive comments from so many different people."

It's not just fans who have been quick to praise Be Charlotte's stock, with eyes at BBC Radio 1 playing the single on their air for its premiere.

Impressing the Scottish Alternative Music Awards is no easy task, yet they managed to do just that by winning the Best Electronic Act of the year.

This girl is a star. Make no mistake.

"When we were away on our European tour we done a show on FluxFM, a massive German radio station, and it's going be played on Austrian radio too," Charlotte adds.

"From the outside, it does look like we've made a lot of progress in a short time. But to me, I've been working on this for the past four or five years now. I'm really excited for this year."

Starting off with an acoustic guitar in her hand at the age of 14, the now 19-year-old is supported by James Smith (keyboard and bass) and David Calder (drums).

She has now abandoned her original guitar beginnings and the memories of learning the violin, to little success, are now well in the past.

Reputable bookings throughout the year will keep their pulsing momentum going for the foreseeable future, with SXSW 2017 and Great Escape 2017 both performances to cast an eye on.

The bespectacled teen never imagined for a second her name would be gracing American festival line-ups or that she would project her voice on the T in the Park Break Stage in 2015, and she is very aware it could have been a whole lot different if she hadn't made one key decision.

"Before I was fully committed to music, I done a lot of dancing and I thought I would be going down that route so I prepared myself for that," she said.

"But when I started writing my own music, I was starting to really enjoy it and that took over more of my time. So at that point I had to decide what I wanted to dedicate my time to. I chose music. It's really hard to tell what I'd be doing now when I think about it. I'm really pleased where the band and music are right now.

"The style has definitely changed a lot musically. Although lyrically and the contents of the songs haven't really changed too much from when I started. I've stuck to writing about real things to me and situations I'm seeing around me. It's developed as I've grown older, but musically it's changed quite a bit going from acoustic to now digital."

She laughs before answering whether her personality has changed in tandem with her music, and after a pause, she stresses that leaving the restrictions of school life aided her progress.

"I have definitely changed over the past five years. I think everybody does during that time in their lives, right? Those teenage years can be a difficult or an insecure time for many people as you might not know what you want to do or maybe don't know what's 'cool' to do. 

"It was difficult to put myself out there at first. But once I started writing more digitally it made me realise the types of sound and the type of music I wanted to create. That made me feel more confident in myself and with my own ideas. I'm not overconfident in any way, but I feel a lot more able to execute things now that I couldn't have done before."

Does that apply to her striking dress sense as well?

"I've always been a little bit different to what people my age would usually wear. I think once I left school I felt I was able to dress the way I wanted and do more of what I wanted. I was no longer confined by what other people thought. I left all that behind."

So apart from her trademark 'damn good vibes', what can the audience at PJ Molloys expect when she grabs the mic? 

"I like to make sure the live show is filled with different elements with some upbeat parts and slower parts, mixed with live and digital instrumentation. And some nicely coordinated outfits as well!"
