THE LOW-DOWN Flor­rie is a 21-year-old Bris­tol gal with a per­cus­sive heart. Drum­ming since the age of seven, she com­bines it with vo­cals, but is more main­stream pop than Cari­bou. Her first sin­gle, Call 911, was remixed by French disco king Fred Falke. Eec­tronic duo Kit­suné are big fans. Col­lab­o­ra­tions and remixes have raised her pro­file, and Ger­man DJ Moguai worked on Come Back to Mine, but there’s no coat-tail­ing here – she writes all her own mu­sic. When not be­ing Flor­rie solo, she is an ex­pe­ri­enced stu­dio en­gi­neer and the house drum­mer for Brian Hig­gins’s Xeno­ma­nia (she drummed on re­cent al­bums by Girls Aloud, Cher and Pet Shop Boys). Her self-be­lief isn’t in doubt, nor are her mo­ti­va­tions – she posts all her mu­sic for free on her web­site, so down­load her In­tro­duc­tion EP as an, er, well, you know.
