"Expect infectious guitar hooks, huge synths and compelling vocals."
In fact, expect all this and a lot more if current 'single' (it's a free download and in 2012 we're never really sure what that means) and former Popjustice Big Song 'Friends' is anything to go by. It's a big fizzing DIY-in-a-good-way slab of thick 80s synths and big, soulful vocals that sets everything up rather nicely. Fans of people with a bit of get up and go might like to know that she writes, records and produces her songs and as well as 'Friends' there's also the bouncy 'Now I Know' and the little-bit-sadface 'Your Eyes Are Glass' knocking about online. It's probably a good idea at this juncture to point out that she didn't take her name from the Neil Young song, 'FYI'.
The Unfair Advantage
Well she was born in Denmark which makes her Scandinavian which means she's naturally predisposed to know her way around an amazing pop song or two.
The Record Label
She's unsigned, ladies and gentlemen.
Who are you and what is your business in the world of pop?
I’m Cinnamon Girl. Songstress and synth geek. I’d like to make people dance in sweaty night clubs. My favourite musical notes are C, E and A to make an A minor chord. It sounds like autumn and misery, and was the first chord I learned to play on the guitar when I was 12.
What is your best song and what is your worst song?
My current favourite is a song I just wrote called 'Devil In Me'. I wrote a song when I was 9 about the different parts of the body that was fairly awful. It was called ‘You Can Hear with Your Ears’.
What's the point?
Why not? I love making music and it’s more fun than working anywhere else.
Who, realistically, do you see yourself being as big as?
Optimus Prime. He’s pretty big.
Do you make music for yourself and if anyone else likes it that's a bonus?
No I’m not that self-indulgent. What’s the point in music if it isn’t made to be shared with other people? I’m sure whichever cave man first started banging on rocks to make a rhythm would have given up eventually, if none of his cave man mates had started joining in.
How good are they out of a million?
