Tell us a little bit about yourself.
22 years old. Born and bred south-east Londoner passionate about honest music and songwriting. Live for the moment where you hear a killer lyric in a new tune. Love performing gigs and having a good time.
How would you describe your musical style?
Lily Allen & Kate Nash vibes, chatty, British, conversational, and creates an image in your head. That’s what I love the most, making people see the story through the music. Using keywords to stick in people’s heads that will trigger an image for them.
What can you tell us about your latest single, “Can’t Be Friends”?
‘Can’t Be Friends’ was written about a toxic love, the love that you ought to run a mile from but still crave anyway. I feel like this is something everyone goes through. There’s just one person who triggers a guilty yet satisfying feeling and the butterflies start to come. The song is about stopping making the excuse of ‘being friends’ in order to keep seeing that person. Basically, The craic of those silly yet seriously enticing games.
How has COVID-19 affected your career?
It’s been difficult. Not being able to gig. Not being able to sing in front of anybody real is tough. There’s only so much rapport you can build in front of a mobile phone camera. But I’ve been involved in lots of online stuff and, to be fair, lots of that has been really cool. It’s meant I’ve interacted with people who I wouldn’t have had the chance to work with before because they’re so far away. But, yeah, I am definitely ready to be in front of a live audience now, there certainly is something special about that. And hopefully, there are little rays of bright light in the future now. You’re all invited to the gig <3
What’s next for your career?
I just want to keep writing music. I know that when I love and listen to an artist I want to hear new music all the time & I really want that to be the case with my releases, so I want there to always be something in the pipeline, coming soon. There’s gonna be lots of fun, lots more songs on the way. Honest lyrics and groovy music to sing in the shower, some great videos and, fingers crossed, some live gigs and festivals – stay in touch on my socials @flo_gallop
What advice would you have for aspiring singers/songwriters?
Just go for it, just absolutely go for it, don’t worry about what ANYONE will think just bloody go for it. Life is too short.
What’s your life like outside of music?
I like binging on real housewives of Beverly Hills or if you ask anyone I’ve always got an episode of friends on in the background, I’ve started baking this lockdown and now would genuinely label myself ‘the queen of the Vicky sponge’. I fantasy shop for things I can’t afford and love exploring new fashion trends & thinking about taking them to the next level. Honestly its wild over here hahaha
You’re a self-proclaimed comedian soooo, do you have any jokes?
I saw a guy spill all his Scrabble letters on the road
I asked him ‘what’s the word on the street’
(Ahahaha u love to see it)
