What are some good current female singers that aren't so mainstream. ?

I'm into soft acoustic music like R.E.M's automatic for the people, I like 60s psychedelic rock, and I like absurd music, like Die Antwoord, Gary Numan, Poppy, Babymetal, Alestorm. I also like heavy metal. Give me some recent female singers that I might like. Preferably a soft rock or acoustic singer. I'm not into mainstream music like Ariana Grande or Lady Gaga and I hate EDM. 


Here's some songs that I've been listening to lately that might give a clue on what female singers I would like. I mean like an acoustic or soft rock female singer. I'd prefer a female singers that's as recent as like 2008 to now.
