Florrie is a lady of many talents, known as much for her fashion presence and modelling as she is for her music. The Bristol born star is also a very accomplished musician having played drums and guitar live and on record for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud and Pet Shop Boys.
After signing a major deal to Sony in 2014, she played a live show in London in April to follow up her acclaimed Sirens EP. But 2015 is set to be her year and it kicked off with her premièring her new track on H&M (below) and she told us that it will be the year she releases her highly-anticipated debut full length album as well!
So ahead of her special one off show at The Borderline, London on 29th January (Tickets HERE), we caught up with Florrie...

What are you up to
this very moment?
I’m in LA. I’ve just woken up and am about to go for a run
in the sun. Then i'm going to the studio to work on a new track!
Very nice!... What can we expect
from your London show at the end of the month?
The set up is going to be different from any show I’ve done
before. We’re going to be trying out a few new things which I’m really excited
about! Lots of new material, and some old favs too.
How will it differ to your last London show in April last
I’m still going to be playing the guitar and drums, but I’m
also going to get more involved electronically than I have done before. I think
there may also be an acoustic surprise…
You’ve just premiered
your new track/video Too Young To Remember on H&M, how has the reaction
It was really nervous about this track and video coming out
as the song means so much to me. I’ve loved it for so long and couldn't wait
for all my fans to hear it. The reaction from new and old fans has been
amazing, so many really lovely comments.
Does your work as a
session drummer influence the end product of your music?
I think it’s impossible for my drumming not to influence any
track I work on. I have strong opinions about what I want a track to sound
like, both the top line and music, which probably stems from my musical
background. The drum sound is always very important to me. When I listen
to a track it’s always what I focus on first without even realising.
Your music is a real
mix of styles, if you had to define it, what would you definition be?
Eclectic, emotive, evolving
Which other artists
are influencing you and your music at the moment?
As far as new music goes I think how Taylor Swift has
evolved as an artist has been incredible to watch, and her latest album ‘22’ is
great - so many catchy, fun pop songs. I think Rhodes is brilliant live,
and I think his EPs released to date are also brilliant.
Is there a date set
for your full album yet?
I can’t say the exact date, but later this year it will be
