Exclusive Interview With Femmepop
Read the Femmepop Interview below and share it on social media.
Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
My real name is Margaret O' Sullivan and stage name being Femmepop. I am and electronic based singer/songwriter/producer and I have recently toured Europe with my latest Album 'Dancing With Myself', which was an 8 track electronic/synthpop album written, recorded, and produced by myself. I mostly used my Ableton Push 2 in writing the album - it was new and it is an amazing instrument. I wanted to educate myself on the instrument while writing the album - it was a great journey!
How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?
I have many many influences and they grow with every year! Growing up I loved Suede, The Sundays, Madonna, Prince etc Now I tastes have obviously remained for those bands but they have grown and they are many many influences. I tend to listen to a lot of female based electronic synthpop now. Generally speaking the boys still get the most exposure and fuss so I have always focused on the underdog, hence women in music. I lcurrently have Nite Jewel, Geneva Jaccuzi, MAAD, Charlie XCX, Julia holter, Tei Shi, and lots more. I also listen to alot of synth based music from musicians I have previously worked with and enjoy like Robert Parker and Timecop1983. There are too many to list.
What´s new right now?
I am currently writing for a new release. I have just managed to get a Korg Minilogue and I am enjoying locking myself ( When I get a chance) away with it and writing. It's a dream and I adore it. So I'm just learning it and finding my way but it feels very natural and easy so I am kinda wishing all these years instead of my guitars I had a lot more synths in my possession instead!!
I plan on playing more gigs in the New Year so looking at various offers for bookings etc. I have a plan to play somewhere very very far away and exciting but can't confirm anything on that yet. There are lots of things happening in the New Year so stay tuned!
