Check out footage of soulful Welsh sensation and Spin's August cover subject Duffy strutting through two tracks from her buzz-building debut, Rockferry, live at the El Ray Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

As evidenced by this set, despite haven broken through by begging for "Mercy," Duffy certainly thrusts forth plenty of '60s soul sass. "I'm not going to bore you with my issues. I've spent £500 a week on counseling," she admits with a smirk. The blonde bombshell continues her introduction by disclosing, "This song is about a guy who told me he loved me, but way too late," before shimmying through a tight rendition of "Delayed Devotion." On the more plaintive and vulnerable "I'm Scared" Duffy emotes, "Dust gathers on my stereo 'cause I can't bear to hear the radio," but luckily, we're the ones doing the listening.

Now Hear this: "Delayed Devotion"
"I'm Scared"
